What looks, on its surface, to be a simple shift can have some powerful consequences with regards to student engagement. I believe Dr. Robinson has hit the nail on the head - especially with libraries. School libraries are the PERFECT place to realize this shift and exemplary librarians have been doing just that for a while now.

8 Back to school activities!

Camilo Toro Arias's curator insight, March 16, 2017 11:01 AM

In today's school English classes, there is only a main objective which is based on the teaching of grammar structures. It is very sad the fact that many language teachers don't invest time on having students interact with each other and develop the communicative competence in depth. This article reflects the importance of having ice-breaking activities, even in the middle of the class, in order to motivate students think and produce in the target language.

Camilo Toro Arias's curator insight, March 23, 2017 2:00 PM
In my opinion, these kinds of activities are important to be addressed in the classroom since teachers must be on the students's side, and having them laugh and enjoy will help. We as teachers need to understand that, in order to have students learn, a full lecture is not necessary, but bringing funny acitivities with crossed language aims might remain in their brains for long.
