Click here for the presentation I gave at the 2015 AISNSW Languages Conference.
I’m excited to have accepted the position as Head of Languages at a new school for 2014 and beyond. I will be leaving St Paul’s with a heavy heart to take on this new role at William Clarke College. I’m sure there will be many rewards and challenges as I step up into a leadership position and I can’t wait to get started! I have grown immensely as a teacher at St Paul’s and have undertaken many and varied projects apart from teaching French. I feel I am ready to see what’s round the next bend in the road – I’m sure you will hear all about it here on the blog as I take on the journey!
My workshop presentation from the AFMLTA Conference 2013.
Here is my quick presentation with a bunch of websites to try with your classes. Let me know if you do and how it goes!
I am in the process of writing my short TeachMeet Languages presentation and I want to get some input from other teachers before I get too far into writing it. I want to know what are the biggest problems or challenges facing languages educators in the classroom today. I have a few of my own ideas, but I’m sure there are more I haven’t thought about and I want to make my presentation not just about my personal experience! So far I have thought of: attracting students to language study through to the end of secondary schooling, the increasing emphasis on technology in the classroom, the ‘teacher centered-ness’ of language education, the rise of Google translate…
So, please add what you believe are the biggest issues facing us as languages teachers today, and perhaps offer a solution that’s worked for you.
As I can’t find an online version of the article, here’s a scanned one! A good plug for students learning languages.
