Dogme teaching in your school: simple, practical, and totally engaging.
This is a copy of a session given at the 2012 International House DoS Conference in London, England
“It’s a great idea, but it would never work…”
Overheard at a recent ELT conference, this comment seems an accurate gauge of feeling towards Dogme teaching.
With its materials-light, conversation-based formula, Dogme has been as much misunderstood as it has been
praised; but one thing that all teachers seem to agree on is that it just doesn’t seem practical enough to really work
on a day-to-day basis. Until now!
This session will demonstrate how a textbook-free ELT course can be set up and run by you, transforming both the
engagement of your students and the motivation of your teachers.
