At the end of every class I’ve ever taught (or even just after….ok, perhaps even during, any activity too), I’ve always thought something along the lines of “hmmm… right, so the next time I do that, I reckon I’ll do X differently” or “that’s funny… I didn’t expect THAT to happen…”
And because I tend to teach the same language points various times, the opportunities to reflect on, and then change, or to develop, my practices come up frequently.
So that’s what this blog is about. Reflecting on my teaching practices, and inviting you to do the same for yours.
My name, by the way, is Alastair. I’ve been teaching English in Buenos Aires, Argentina, since 2007. I love my life here – the ornate, Baroque grandeur of the city, the crucible of European and ethnic cultures and the fact that any wine over about 10 pesos a bottle will be pretty decent.
