Demand High ELT (1) | Jim Scrivener

Steve Kirk's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:42 AM

Hear about the conception and development of the Demand High ELT 'meme' straight from Jim Scrivener. He's right about the way EFL has perfected the procedural, the 'how' of classroom management and materials delivery. He and Adrian Underhill's call for practice that moves a little more from 'learner centred' to 'learning centred' is long long overdue in the EFL world.

Steve Kirk's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:24 AM

EAP should, in principle, always be 'demand high'. Here Jim Scrivener talks about the Demand High 'meme' for ELT generally. I think it's a really useful 'crystaliser' of things we already do in the EAP classroom, but perhaps need to think about more. EAP classroom practice has, in my experience, inherited from EFL an over-reliance on the procedural delivery of materials. EAP, given its often high-stakes nature, cannot afford to be this. We need to get down and messy with our students' (mis)understandings of content, texts and language. Demand High ELT gives us, I think, some useful food for thought. I've also posted some (early) thoughts on 'demand high EAP' here: http://bit.ly/Uxsh1j

Watch examples of Demand High tweaks to teaching from Adrian Underhill. As you might expect, he focuses on pronunciation work, but the demand high idea can be applied to all aspects of our teaching. See their website for more: http://demandhighelt.wordpress.com/ ;
