After 6 months of now physically living in the UAE as well, here is… [drumrolls!]…
My Middle-Eastern ELT Teacher Training Manifesto -in line with Communicative Language Teaching. 😉
Make sure you add a pinch of all these ingredients for the best student experience:
S-S over TTT
Context (=Text) over PPT
Meaning over Form
Scope over Drowning
SEL over Punitive
Humans over Tech
Monitor over Neglect
Teach In-Class over Assigning as Homework
(Download the complete PDF here).
Which of these ‘flavors’ is most important, in your opinion?
Hi. I’m Fatime. I’m an IELTS Teacher Trainer, helping CELTA-qualified English language teachers become better at teaching SKILLS, as opposed to just testing them.
