Are Native English Speakers Really Better Teachers?

I’m an American English teacher living in Belo Horizonte, and after three years of teaching, it has become increasingly clear to me that the majority of Brazilians have a very strong belief that native speaking teachers are superior to non-natives/Brazilian teachers.

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

Dorothy Minor's curator insight, July 8, 2013 12:29 PM

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

This research project aims to provide a broad summary of current student and teacher perceptions of the contemporary English language needs of young adults in Europe, and the implications of this for ELT.

If you are an English language teacher (i.e., ELT / TESOL) working in Europe, you can help by completing a short questionnaire which should take you approximately twenty minutes. Find out more >>

Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum

Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Padlet has morphed into a full blown online interactive whiteboard, collaboration, presentation, lesson management system with massive possibilities for teaching and learning. Before demonstrating how I have used Padlet in the classroom in ways I couldn’t have in the past, I’ll give you a quick(ish) tutorial in how it works."

Why choose to use Padlet? Aside from the fact that is free, it does not require that register. Gleeson recommends that as a teacher you create an account so that all the "walls" you create are in one place.

This post provides detailed instructions on how to create a wall and includes two projects that he has done with his students.

If you have not checked out Padlet I suspect you will after you read this post!

I like this tool. Very useful and it works with iPhones in the classroom!

Anne Sturgess's curator insight, May 7, 2013 2:17 PM

I'm using Padlet in a variety of ways, including gathering teacher and student ideas and for feedback about any shifts in practise related to the work I do as a Facilitator of Professional Learning for teachers.

In English Digital - 4

"The fourth edition of the magazine for teachers of English in Portuguese speaking countries, with a special focus on Brazil."

 

Shona Whyte:

A digital magazine for EFL/ESL teachers with lots of short articles on different aspects of English teaching and certainly not only relevant to those in Portugal or Brazil.

 

Two articles caught my eye: one by Lynn Wilson on routines for younger learners, with lots of good ideas for classroom management and maximising authentic communication, and another by Fitch O'Connell on autonomous group work in state school language classes, which explains how to implement group work and what the benefits might be.  Adrian Tennant also lets off steam with "Six Acts of Sheep" where he urges teachers not to be seduced by fashionable notions concerning Universal Grammar, four skills, TTT, testing, pre-teaching and authentic materials.
