Doing What Works For You :

Doing What Works For You : | Teachers for Interactive Language Learning (TILL) | Scoop.it
Benjamin Stewart's insight:

Simply doing what words for you can limit professional learning by practitioners working in isoloating.

 

"I look at learning and teaching additional languages as being too complex to resolve one's thinking to an answer like "this is the way to teach".  Sure, question others who say this about how others should teach, but question yourself for saying the same about your own practice.  My advice would be to read the literature (because it is important); be mindful of your own practice through reflection, especially adoption, and adaption; and share successes and challenges with others, openly and with currency (e.g., a dialtectic).  Bring these three elements together by looking for relevant patterns that help one's planning, instruction, and assessment going forward."
