It’s that time of the year. While most people wish to extend their holidays, I look forward to heading back to work. This is the place where we can make a difference in the world. The workplace is the reason why we need a break and actually appreciate that break the most.
I tend to draw a blank when I look at a term plan. It is important, especially when teaching English, to stay current and so our ears stay on the ground for anything that will help us to teach the good old things better.
A nifty trick that has helped me this time around is looking up the themes of a set work being taught in a term and then using those themes to find apppropriate poetry and visual literacy material.
In a nutshell; Google remains king! I hope you all had a good first week back at work after the holidays and to the teachers; go out there and be better! Happy weekend!
