Early Childhood Reflections (May #globalclassroom Archives)

Early Childhood Reflections (May #globalclassroom Archives) | Teaching English to Young Learners | Scoop.it

The May #globalclassroom chats were some of the liveliest and productive we’ve had in some time. With contributions from leading early childhood educators around the world, it is hard to sum up the true impact of these chats …I highly recommend exploring the archives for great links, resources, and ideas for integrarating global perspectives into the early years.

SooJin-Stella Lee's curator insight, May 14, 2013 6:22 AM

One of the reasons that I am majoring in English Education is that I can teach students more professionally in the developing world. I thought learning English benefits them in various ways. However, I did not have clear information about how to provide them effective classes. I found out that I should be more friendly toward them than other students in the develped countries. Those five instructions fairly helped me a lot. I hope we can help them to study happily and live more peaceful lives.
