  1. Should students evaluate their teachers? How does this benefit teacher & learners?

    (this was submitted last week and received quite a few votes)

    I personally would love to discuss flipped classroom. I haven’t checked if this has been covered in previous chats though.

  3. Peter Pun says:

    These are all things I’d like to chat about this week.
    1) how do we ensure that students have a ‘sense of progress’, especially in General English classes?
    2) signposting lessons effectively
    3) teaching a standardised product – pros and cons
    4) classroom routines for YLs
    5) dealing with disruptive behaviour with YLs/teens

  4. Hi Peter Pun and thanks – will put up a couple of your topics and keep some for next week

    Which ones would u go for – not sure I understand Q 3 – doesn’t readily mean much to me – product writing? Clarify pls

  5. Peter Pun says:

    Hi Marisa.
    Re: Q3. I work at the British Council. We have our own ‘standardised’ product for adult classes. It a syllabus called myClass, every lesson follows a similar pattern, resources are ready made and just need tweaking from the teacher. That’s what I was getting at – when you’re at a place like BC, Wall Street, many summer schools in England, etc, where resources are provided. Whats good and bad about this? How much freedom do you have? etc… Is that a bit clearer or still a bit loose? Cheers

  6. OK – thanks – the term product is used for other stuff – which confused me. In a sense this is not much different to ‘follow the course book blindly’ so it would be relevant to more ppl not just BC Ts – can put up for next week, yes.
