‘Reflections of a Teacher and Learner’ by Dave Dodgson

Dave Dodgson’s latest blog post is entitled ”Reflections of a Teacher and Learner.”

Dave says, ”This is especially true of stories, which are often reduced to language learning exercises, with highlighted grammar points, key word lists, and gap-fills to test ‘understanding’ of the text. The same is true of writing activities which often restrict our learners within the confines of a particular topic or starting point and demand use of specific words or structures. Stories then become ‘boring’ rather than engaging and writing is seen as a chore.”
