A teacher affects eternity:
he can never tell where his influence stops.
On this page we’re opening the blog up as a place to discuss teaching issues which you have always wanted to air and hear the opinions of your pedagogical peers form across the globe!
Every few weeks, we’ll have a tantalising teaching statement which we want YOU to vote on. We’ll then give you the opinion of a well-known ELT writer, about which you are free to share your thoughts too!
Well, the results of your votes are in for our first controversial teaching statement:
“My students just want to speak today, but we have to get through our lesson! What should I do?”
You voted overwhelmingly (70%!) for the option:
“Forget about the coursebook for today and have an unplanned speaking lesson.”
It’s time to reveal the secret ELT writer who has agreed to comment on your votes… we are delighted to have writing for us none other than Scott Thornbury!
ALSO… we want you to write to us with questions that you’d like to gauge other teachers’ opinions on. Anything goes, so get thinking and drop us a line now!
