What is your advice about? Teaching English
1: Set clear behaviour management boundaries which allow you then to take risks in the classroom & embark upon adventurous approaches.
2: Take risks & plan exciting activities that might not go to plan because they might just work! Employ adventurous approaches that are fun; for your pupils & for you!
3: Cultivate your own ideas. Follow the seed of an idea and let your imagination do the rest. Have a crazy idea then plan how you can use it in the classroom.
4: Love the children you teach, especially the ones who are hard to love. Show them you like them & praise them frequently & genuinely.
5: Read the books your children read, read about your craft, read the TES, blogs on Twitter and the newspaper. Make time to read & read silently with your class sometimes too.
