What’s wrong with Russell Stannard’s Teacher Training Videos? « one year | technology in language teaching | Scoop.it
You are probably wondering at this point why I’ve named this post as I have, but there is a reason. I can perhaps best illustrate it by discussing one of my students and a problem she’d identified in her own learning. Gizem is one of those students which we as teachers – subjectively – describe as being a joy to teach. She asked pertinent questions in class when she needed clarification, she went home and reviewed what we’d done that day, and she would identify areas in her learning that she felt she needed to work on. I’d regarded Gizem as being quite a strong reader, this observation was based on her ability to read a number of texts and extract information from them to support her ideas in an essay. So well had she done this that I felt moved to show her work to other teachers, who all agreed that her ability to read to a level whereby she could understand and extract ideas, in this particular instance at least, was fantastic. Consequently, I was somewhat surprised when she performed relatively poorly in reading exams. We discussed this problem in some detail.
