Oh the beauty of teaching... my dear readers... and the wonderful feeling to be had from a classroom filled with happy shiny students...
The power to move mountains.... oh ok, not mountains, but definitely a few minds, something infinitely more powerful...
I started using Chris Biffle's Whole Brain Teaching methods more than 8 years ago when I started my most challenging class ever: teaching English to Grade 1s.
"Whats so challenging about that ?" I hear you ask.
Well....(holding up 3 fingers) ....three things:
1) They are 6 years old and have a seriously limited attention span. We are talking roughly 5 minutes. 8 if its early morning, 3 if its the last period.
2) I teach at an all-boys school. so only boys in my class : say no more.
3) My classroom consist of students who have almost no understanding of English. They are all native Thais, who beyond 'Hello' and 'Im fine', are totally unfamiliar with the language. I may as well be teaching Klingon.
Over the years Ive used Whole Brain Teaching and it has changed everything. Kids are engaged all the time and thanks to this alone, bad behavior is substantially reduced. Its brilliant to help kids remember vocabulary or sentence structures by building a powerful bridge between saying words and associating it with kinetic movement. It allows students to become co-teachers to help reinforce information , empower them and allow them to stay engaged in the learning process.Read more ›
