I just gave a series of workshops on teaching teens and the considerations instructors must make when dealing with these “volatile” learners…. Also, posted an article I wrote about teaching teens.
What do you think of the suggestions I gave in the power point below? (flash presentation here)
Here too is a great article by Gary Anderson with recommendations for language teachers that we covered in the workshop. Also, we role played this conversation / interview with Jeremy Harmer. Lots of good advice from teachers in the trenches there….
What do you think we have to do more or less, when teaching teens?
Make sure to visit Dana Boyd, the expert on teens and social media/learning….. she has lots of insightful things to say.
Also more resources available on my institute’s site.
