Monday, 25th April

1. Another free book from Cambridge University Press in their Elements in Language Teaching series, Reflective Practice in Language Teaching by Thomas S C Farrell https://www.cambridge.org/core/elements/reflective-practice-in-language-teaching/DFC2E45025AE1A9520A4A1A5B832B872

One of the author’s intentions is to call “attention to the importance of emotions in the process of reflection for language teachers”. PDF below.

2. Also from Cambridge, a good clear publication on what they understand by Digital Literacy https://issuu.com/cambridgeupelt/docs/clc_digital_literacy_issuu PDF below.

3. “The HLT Digital project aims to digitise and preserve a body of knowledge on Humanistic Language Teaching (HLT) as an approach to language teaching (which) places the ‘whole person’ at the centre of the learning process”, and it will be discussed at 16:00 UK time tomorrow, Tuesday 26th April, by Susan Holden, Klaudia Bednárová, Rod Bolitho and Alan Maley.

4. Scroll right down for the free option on this one: Exploring English: Shakespeare https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/explore-english-shakespeare Two hours a week for six weeks, which might work for (some of) your students? It’s aimed at B1 CEFR level.

Here’s the course blurb: “This course will look at the life and works of William Shakespeare and take you from his birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe Theatre in London, from where he secured his central place in English literature. We will look at five of Shakespeare’s plays (Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing, The Tempest and Macbeth) with the help of actors and experts from around the world. They will explain and explore the universal themes Shakespeare addressed in his work.”

5. And, finally, there’s theory, and there’s practice https://lithub.com/the-novelist-who-wrote-how-to-murder-your-husband-is-now-on-trial-for-murdering-her-husband/
