Dear friends, another week has gone by and today I wanted to share some thoughts regarding participation and participation grading in the World Language Classroom. As I say in the video, I know by experience that this is an issue that language teachers struggle with.
As always my recommendation is to try to see beyond the prescriptive, traditional advice. Let’s try to analyze everything “outside of the box” let’s wear a hat like we are still on vacation, but let’s wear it backwards! We are working with kids, with teenagers and as we did when we were that age, we see the world in a very different way. Let’s stop trying to impose our world on them!
As always I welcome questions and/or kind comments. We are teachers, we know what this means and we owe respect and appreciation for eachother.
Here is this week´s “teaching with your hat backwards” video:
