Phobic Wednesday, 17th November

1. First, a blog for Cambridge University Press and Assessment (never to be acronymised, I’m reliably informed, as it sounds like a lollipop) by Chris Sowton celebrating Paulo Freire https://www.cambridge.org/elt/blog/2021/11/09/what-freire-can-teach-about-teaching/

2. … and second, a blog for Pearson by Jeanne Perrett  https://www.english.com/blog/10-free-worksheets-values-inspired-by-disney/  including 10 free worksheets to teach values inspired by Disney characters that might be fun.

That said, I can well remember the ‘fun’ we had a few years ago when a colleague decided to develop materials inspired by a young man whose initials are H and P, but I’d expect Pearson to have got it right on copyright!

3.Thai blogs are like London buses – don’t think I need to explain, do I?

Here’s Richard Watson Todd’s blog summary of a forthcoming ELTJ article on The languaging curriculum https://sola.pr.kmutt.ac.th/homesola/index.php/the-languaging-curriculum/

and here’s the accompanying website for the ‘hobby course’ https://solatlc.wixsite.com/languaging/hobby-course which repays the investment of a little time.

4. Dorian Gray did not suffer from eisoptrophobia – or did he, maybe?

5. And, finally, another letter from The Times, this one bemoaning the decline of the apostrophe, attached below.
