“The unhealthy noise in our profession” – Teacher Talking Time

  1. If only teacher training courses went beyond purely instructional language, eh? This is something I talked about in my own presentation in Glasgow and spoke a lot about Rod Bolitho’s great article on quality teacher talk which encourages teachers to look at TTT as an opportunity for learning (and not just language itself). Every teacher should read it and consider what they say in class: Teacher Talk and Learner Talk https://www.scribd.com/mobile/document/81156238/Teacher-Talk-and-Learner-Talk
    Thanks,

  2. I’m all for TTT and think it greatly enhances students learning. There’s nothing like a structured anecdote with activities to motivate students and provide them with a memorable class, especially if it’s a funny story. How often do you tell anecdotes​?
