One of my favourite things about Twitter and facebook is the fact that whenever you ask for help with planning a lesson, lots of people respond. Here is an example of a lesson revising ‘have’ and another about TV shows that I was helped with. This has inspired me to create a whole blog for lesson ideas, to complement my main blog at http://sandymillin.wordpress.com.
Each week I will post a prompt for you to exercise your teaching muscles by making suggestions on how you could use it in class. You can also take a look back at some of the old prompts. Some of the ones with the most ideas so far are:
All ideas are welcome – there are no wrong answers! I will cover as many areas as possible with my prompts: pictures, realia, texts, pieces of software…
As the ideas come in, I will add tags to show what has been suggested. Together we’ll build up a bank of inspiration for you to turn to whenever you’re stuck, which you’ll be able to search by clicking on the tags for the blog.
It would also be great if you could share examples of how you’ve used the ideas in your lesson after the fact. Looking forward to seeing them!
Take a look at the most recent prompts here. If you have any ideas for future prompts, please let me know.
