School of TEFL

My first lecture at SEEC will be on Teaching "young adults", otherwise known as "teens". They can be both terribly energizing and terribly frustrating! I'll do my best to give you some tools to make your classroom a more "teenager" friendly place.


The lecture will focus on 4 components.

1. Identifying what is unique about teaching Korean teenagers (or any nationality) English. What are the challenges. See the 12 suggestions of Anderson and complete the task.

2. Identifying and discussing the digital divide in most cases between teachers and students.

3. Highlighting and demonstrating generic lessons that work with teens. Music / Movies / ME!!!!

4. Designing and developing a 10 min lesson activity using the Engage / Study / Activate lesson plan. Sharing that lesson idea!

Here's the TTS (text to speech ) of Anderson's article, Teaching Teenagers. Get audio like this for any text at iSpeech.

I"d like you to comment and discuss --

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM TEACHING TEENAGERS? HOW MIGHT YOU CHANGE THINGS TO MAKE IT BETTER?

Thanks and look forward to meeting everyone.

David

This article is NOT required reading but you might find it useful. I certainly did. It really says some amazing things about teaching teens and just plain old good teaching! Motivation is key with teenagers!

HI:

My name's Yamith Fandiño. I'm an EFL teacher and professor in Bogotá, Colombia. I just wanted to say the presentation you have about teaching teens is interesting. It has simple, but effective tips to consider when working with teenagers. A student of mine had asked me for some material about working with teenagers and now I can share with him what I found on this website. Great job guys. Congratulations.
Yamith,

Great to hear. I just wanted to provide the teachers I was teaching in the TESOL course - some reflection on the characteristics of teen learners but in a very practical fashion.

Anderson's article is really good also.

Thanks for the feedback and reaching out. I'm a big believer in sharing material and an "open" school/educational system free for all.

Cheers,

David
