I’ve talked before about how we can “flip” a classroom, so the kids learn at home , and class time is actually spent interacting with them, instead of lecturing. If you haven’t tried it yet, it will revolutionise how you think about teaching.
But there is so much more that we can do. Have a look at this amazing video from Salman Khan:
(The bit about badges and awards at the end might interest a few of you!)
Now, do I know how to do this with your English classroom?
To be honest, I don’t.
It is a huge challenge to bring English teaching up to the level of other subjects.
Heck, some teachers even today are forced to teach crazy tests or grammar translation.
But I’m sure with all your help we can come up with some amazing ideas and new solutions to make classrooms like Salman aspires to!
What do you think? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
