Following good teaching practice, I am starting my blog with my statement of purpose and my goals. This blog, I hope, will help me re-examine the purpose of English education and allow me to discover new ideas to improve English teaching and learning.
Through sharing my reflections and exploring new resources, I hope to address the following themes:
- Language – How can we help students appreciate the power of language and develop their own powerful language skills?
- Literature – How can we adapt the middle/high school canon of literature to capture students’ imaginations and spark a desire to be lifelong readers?
- Inspiration – Most importantly, how can we inspire students (and other teachers) to learn in exciting and creative ways?
