I went through the main edits of the teaching parts of the three themes on the DVD today. They do look really good and I don’t think I need any reshoots. The only problem that if teachers just play the DVD without getting the kids to join in then it could seem a bit boring. But hopefully the teachers will be there to help the kids. The DVD isn’t designed to be a replacement teacher, it’s designed to be a “virtual ALT”, so that class room teachers can teach together with the DVD. And for ALTs themselves it should be good in that the Japanese teachers can use the DVD when the ALT is not there and when they do have visits they can spend more time on communication activities with the kids!

But it does take a long time to edit each one up!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
