Patricia Daniels's curator insight, January 20, 2013 4:58 AM

Some interesting points and useful tips here for teachers regarding recycling language and revisiting texts. Thornbury makes the observation that often in  texts books each unit covers a different topic which means that new language is being introduced and language from previous units is not being repeated or reviewed. This is where we as teachers can introduce other resouces that help bind all the topics and also use five minute activites to recapitulate on language that has already been introduced in order to revive it.

This is a great idea in infusing character building while strengthening student's language and sentence building in a communicative situation. 

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, April 30, 6:53 PM

This is a fun way to get students involved in not only the writing process but also grammar.  The beautiful thing is they don't even know they're learning grammar because they are too busy giving advice and telling their classmates what to do.
