6 language Teaching for the planet

Are the activities boring and unappealing?

Try an experiment!

Water filtration experiment

Face to face activity, online (the teacher can do the experiment in a live lesson and the children can do the rest of the activity their parents and present in an online lesson).

Individual and group work

Prediction question: Which filter do you think will work the best and why?

1. A few recyclable plastic bottles, cut in half;

2. Used sponge, cotton, sand, rocks, or any other material you have that can act as a filter.

3. WATER!

Engagement

It's vital!

The Learning experience can be defined as the perceived quality of the learners' engagement with various aspects of the language learning process (Zoltán Dörnyei, 2019)

Outdoor learning: Can it be independent and how?


  • Explore the surroundings before you decide to take your outdoor lesson to that location;
  • See what the outdoor location itself can offer and develop your lesson around the natural surroundings;
  • Give a lot of choice in terms of activities;
  • Provide chances for exploration and experimenting;
  • Provide sensory experiences and independent play;
  • Don't over-structure your activities;
  • Don't interrupt any activity and use any unplanned occurrences to learn something;
  • Start by using a low prep activity such as a nature scavenger hunt. Get a free natural scavenger hunt material for outdoor learning here! (No need to print out the scavenger hunt sheet, if you want you can copy-paste it manually or have children copy and make their own copies.)

Hack the Notion and Function


The other day ...

Lesson name:W0314CL-A
Lesson topicCommunication skills in the workplace
Lesson planW0314CL-A -LP.pdf
Lesson materialsW0314CL-A -HO.pdf
Lesson outcomes
By the end of the lesson learners will be better able to persuasively communicate their point of view in a workplace setting.

Business time!

Step 1: make a cup of tea (brain whirring in the background)

Step 2: Get the resource I've remembered!

Step 3: Write to them and ask for permission to reuse as it helps make a connection.

Step 4: Write the lesson materials and ensure:

  • a very clear link between the lesson and this new input.
  • a staged entry into the topic of climate change
  • minimal use of text from the 'Talking Climate Handbook'

Step 5: Teach a greened version of the set lesson, thus embedding environmental issues little and often


Imagine the next notion or function in the syllabus is 'difficult discussions'. How can we hack it?
