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.

I believe you should teach your students how to write without prompts. That said, it's great to have prompts available when the pump needs priming.

Pinterest, Educanvas, LiveBinders, Storybird, VoiceThread: heard of 'em all, tried none of them.  But I like the idea that technology should be neither add-on nor main event.

Des appli Web 2 intéressantes. A creuser!

Mel Wruck's curator insight, June 13, 2013 1:03 AM

This article presents and discusses a range of Web 2.0 tools and how they can be used and the benefits of incorporating them into the curriculum. It also has a great video on how one teacher uses free Web 2.0 tools in her classroom.

Deeper thinking/creativity 

Who are you in the picture?

 

A suggestion from Ben Goldstein's talk: The Power of Image - developing visual literacy in the classroom. Brought by Anna Young, a teacher at Bell International, Cambridge Campus. 

 

1. Stds decide who they want to be in the picture. T reads out the following questions while stds look and think about their answers:

- How are you feeling?

- What has just happened to you?

- What regrets do you have?

- What are you going to do next?

- What are you looking forward to?

 

2. Stds then tell their partner their answers beginning with " I... "

3. The partners should guess which person in the picture they have decided "to be".

 

Questions can/should be adapted for different levels.

 

T might want to conduct a follow-up activity by comparing this picture with a parody picture. My favourite one is The Simpsons parody. ( check link below )

 

Stds would simply have to spot the differences and similarities, and comment on the humour effect of parodies. ( if it's an upper-int group or higher )

Sounds fun, exciting and very thoughtful! Knowledge is everywhere. We need to be teaching our students how to use the knowledge to their advantage - so, think, be creative and think some more.
