After teaching for 30 years, I have come to the conclusion that the best classes are those are constantly providing fresh and topical content to students.
I am always struggling and experimenting with ways to do this.
And I have realized that it may not just be fresh content but that it can be a fresh format (sometimes in the smallest ways) that makes an exercise interesting. I am always trying to create new worksheets that help engage the students and also that help make the lessons flow better.
Here are a some recent experiments that have gone fairly well:
Of course, apart from trying to create fresh content and formats, there are multiple other factors to consider.
One of those other factors is teaching efficiency and fluidity. And if you are teaching large classes, teaching efficiency is really important.
One of the ways I manage my listening/speaking classes (I have been teaching 50 student listening/speaking classes!) is by using the latest technology which allows me to monitor individual students at the same time as I am managing the listening material for 50 students (see how I manage listening/speaking classes below).
NB: Sometimes I make errors in the worksheets. If anyone wants to contact me about the content on this site, my email is email@example.com I welcome suggestions and can fix errors or any download problems really quickly.
