This post is all about getting you to come on over to the new blog I have created. Teaching unplugged week – http://teachingunpluggedweek.wordpress.com/
The aim of the project is to get teachers thinking about how they teach and what happens in their classroom. I would like to encourage teacher exploration, research and reflection by experimenting with unplugged teaching. I hope this will lead to teachers researching other methods and approaches, allowing them to leave the course book at the class room door and push themselves and their students into new areas to improve themselves and make them better teachers and learners.
The premise is quite simple. Teachers commit to teaching unplugged with a class for at least two lessons and then submit their thoughts and reflections, before, during and after the experience.
The site has articles from Scott Thornbury, Christina Rebuffet-Broadus and Mike Harrison. During the coming weeks more will be added by other teachers as the project progresses.
If you have a spare 5 minutes, come on over and check it out. What have you got to lose?
