    Is there something called a teacher’s kit, something to resort to when all fail? what is this kit?

  2. Adam says:

    Is what you’re teaching relevant to what your students need? If not, Who’s / what’s to blame?

  3. Today is World Down Syndrome day. http://www.worlddownsyndromeday.org/ A nice topic could be: Are schools ready for students with Down’s syndrome and other learning disabilities? Is there specific ELT material discussing this issue?

  4. Josh Round says:

    I was thinking of something very similar to Adam’s suggestion above…
    ‘Dealing with ever-changing class & learner profiles on continuous enrolment courses & how best to meet their needs’

    What books or authors have inspired you or influenced the way you teach?

  6. BobK99 says:

    Something to add to Ola’s idea: cool web2 tools for use in language lessons. I think @sarahharrison blogged about it a few months ago.

    Is spelling important? And if it is, how do we teach it?

    How can we make observations less stressful and more a part of ongoing professional development?
