As a language teacher:
Do you often take a route to teaching/learning mediated by materials or the one “located in the interactivity between teachers and learners, and between the learners themselves?” (Thornbury, 2009)
Do you believe the more (or fewer) resources (e.g.: Hand-outs, videos, games, etc) you use in class, the more students learn?
Do you agree or disagree that a lot of teaching practice in our profession should consist in teaching particular things in a particular order, in particular lessons? (Allwright, 2005).
This session compares and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses of teaching pre-emptively or responsively and possible implications of teachers’ approaches.
