Not me!!, said the cat.
Sometimes when you feel rather exhausted from looking for creative and interesting things to do in your Esl classroom, you need to change the focus. What I mean is that often the teacher is trying to offer the most exciting and colorful lessons and that most of the work is being done by the teacher and not the students.
Change the doer.
Create lessons in which presentations are given by the students, pair work is presented, group work and assignments are worked on in class. Of course the teacher needs to present and teach the particular structure necessary but practice and the real learning can be done in a variety of ways by the students themselves.
Analyze your lessons and take a different look at your teaching methods. Are you doing most of the work?
Hello fellow teachers,
