If you’re new to teaching, the end of the summer may bring more than chills from the cooler air. If it is your first time with a classroom of your very own, it can be a little nerve wracking.

Using games to teach vocabulary? Teach them English

Using games to teach vocabulary? Teach them English | "English Language and Literature" | Scoop.it

Going through the process of acquiring new vocabulary is long, time consuming, and can therefore become boring for many learners, but developing knowledge through word games can make the task fun for both learners and teachers. Word and language games not only make class time go faster, they improve learners’ rates of learning and retention. Nevertheless, effective vocabulary teaching isn’t all fun and games. When considering language games as part of your lesson plan, we need to be careful and really think things through. - See more at: http://www.teachthemenglish.com/2014/07/using-games-to-teach-vocabulary-4-reasons-to-think-again/#sthash.vfZ07Bl4.dpuf

Ken Morrison's curator insight, August 28, 6:44 PM
I have a wonderful friend who is currently a student teacher. I absolutely love chatting to her about her experiences and questions, as she challenges me to reflect on my own practice: to re-evaluate my strategies; to work out what it is I do and why; to tweak what isn’t working. Her questions are always intelligent, thought-provoking and full of exciting curiosity – she is going to make an exceptional teacher. A few weeks ago she asked me how to get students to ‘come to the party’; how to entice them to engage and participate in the learning experience so that it wasn’t a one-sided affair. Yikes! What a question. This got me thinking and I came to an interesting realisation: In the first five minutes, I can tell how a lesson is going to be received. Really. If, after the introductory minutes, my student have already slumped down into their seats, are gazing out the window or surreptitiously texting under their desks (yes, we do realize that is what you are doing; we don’t think that you are just staring at your crotch), then I know my job for the next 45 minutes is going to be a lot more difficult. I set the scene for my lesson in those first five minutes. Somehow, I need to ‘hook’ them in, pique their interest, give them a reason to be invested in what they are going to learn. I realise this is no small feat, so here are 5 tips for breaking with routine and shaking thinks up at the start of the lesson: 1. Rearrange the desks. (There is something about rearranged desks that makes students curious about the upcoming lesson..."What will happen today?" 2. Tell them not to take out their books. (this mixes up routine) 3. Ask a thought-provoking question. 4. Play a video clip. (strategically) 5. Play a game. (occasionally - very short)
