Your Task: Find a specific aspect of teaching that you’d like to workshop. This can be...
- A Lesson Component - (e.g. start with a Bang!, engaging review, giving directions)
- A Method - (e.g. speaking jigsaw, flipped classroom, fluency writing)
- A Tool/Resource - (e.g. non-naughty pop songs, Quizlet)
- A Language Skill - (e.g. coordinating conjunctions, past perfect progressive, asking for directions)
You can get ideas from your own teaching and observations, something you’ve experienced at a workshop (including TTP), the TTPKitchen, your TTP Goals, or any other source. You will have 2+ hours of TW time to research this and prepare a mini-presentation. We will start presentations at the end of Week#2.
This is an opportunity for you to present something potentially useful to your colleagues, share your thinking and findings, and discuss possibilities in class. Have you ever thought to yourself, “Oh, I’d like to try ‘x’ in my class, but just don’t have the time”? Now you do :)
