Cette idée est née car je souhaitais amener ma classe voir l'exposition itinérante dédiée à l'oeuvre de Tim Burton et actuellement à la cinémathèque de Paris. J'y suis allé en amont et n'ai pas trouvé de véritable intérêt pédagogique pour y amener une classe, les visites de groupes avec guide étant toutes complètes jusqu'à la fin de l'année. J'ai cependant pu rapporter du matériel authentique qui servirait alors dans le cadre de cette séquence.
Scuola, compattare l'orario... si può! Sperimentando una delle idee del Movimento delle Avanguardie Educative Stefania Chipa e Lorenza Orlandini - La Compattazione del calendario scolastico è una delle idee delle Avanguardie educative che a Novembre 2014, quando è stato lanciato il Movimento, ha destato timidi interessi; ma poi, nel corso dell’anno, ha raccolto molte adesioni da parte delle scuole adottanti. Partita con 3 scuole capofila - l’IIS "Luca Pacioli" di Crema (CR), il Liceo Linguistico e Istituto Tecnico Economico statale "Marco Polo" di Bari e l’IISS "Ettore Majorana" di Brindisi -, adesso conta 25 scuole che, da settembre 2015, sperimenteranno questa nuova organizzazione del tempo scolastico. Certamente il primo effetto derivante dall’introduzione della compattazione è lo scardinamento dell’organizzazione temporale della giornata scolastica e, per questa ragione, richiede una grande attenzione nella progettazione dell’orario; a cascata, però, interessa tutte le dimensioni che fanno parte della scuola.
Freedom Writers: Anne Frank A. Work with a partner. Choose the correct answer. Make guesses. Reflective teaching: Exploring our own classroom practice By collecting information about what goes on in our classroom, and by analysing and evaluating this information, we identify and explore our own practices and underlying beliefs. This may then lead to changes and improvements in our teaching. Reflective teaching is therefore a means of professional development which begins in our classroom.

You might think or tell someone that "My lesson went well" or "My students didn't seem to understand" or "My students were so badly behaved today."
10 useful websites for ELT A self-development task during my diploma last year asked me to list all the websites I found useful in my ELT practice. The document I created spanned about 6 pages – it could easily have been longer. I’m sure there’s a lot of common ground between us teachers, experienced or not. A majority of the sites I use were either found through a Google Search or passed on from colleagues. Nevertheless, I think it’s worth listing a few of my favourite sites as some serve rather specific purposes.
The Challenge of Teaching English to Dyslexic Students by Julia Shewry This week we are excited to bring you a post by BELTA member Julia Shewry, an EFL teacher in Wallonia. Julia shares with us her experience of working with dyslexic learners learning a foreign language.

Julia Shewry How to write a personal statement for a UK university Kathryn Abell of Edukonexion shares some tips ahead of her talk at the British Education Fair in Madrid taking place on 19-20 October 2015. When applying to a UK university, the discovery that school grades alone are not enough to gain entry onto the programme of your choice can come as an unwelcome surprise. This is especially true for international students, many of whom see the words 'personal statement' for the first time when starting their university application.

50 Things You Can Say To Encourage A Child - 50 Things You Can Say To Encourage A Child by TeachThought Staff There are many ways to encourage a child, but for students of any age, honest, authentic, and persistent messages from adults that have credibility in their eyes are among the most powerful. The National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning has put together the following list, 50 Ways To Encourage A Child. It was designed for younger students (head start/kindergarten), but with the exception of 4, 17, 21, and maybe 40, they’re actually useful for K-12 in general. It all depends on your tone, the situation, and who else is listening.
