Hi and welcome to my new blog.
I’ve been teaching for a couple of years now and I’ve decided to set myself a challenge.
I’ve noticed that the best way to engage my students is to provide an engaging context through various forms of media. Films, pictures and stories work great but my best lessons have been song based.
It’s not been all plain sailing. Trying to force my students to listen to my playlists backfired terribly. How can you not appreciate Iggy? Letting students choose a contemporary pop song seems to be the best way forward.
My challenge is to design and publish a lesson based on a song in the Top 10 every week.
If you have any feedback or suggestions please let me know.
