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.
