Welcome Al Dhabiania Teachers
In this session we will focus on: Engaging Students
How can we make learning fun?
Play a game
What?! Waste valuable lesson time? NOT a game that takes 20min and NOT every lesson. Now and then start the lesson with a 5 minute game . It gets the students ready in a good mood to learn and gets endorphins flowing from the laughter.
Change desk arrangments
Students become lazy in their comfort so shake them out of it! Move desks into pairs, groups the next week, a circle the next. Students come in asking "What are we doing today?"
Make learning 'hands on'
Get students moving
Give them objects to use and manipulate USe actions for keywords / to get attention
Swap roles: Student becomes teacher
Student creates a resource/game Plans a mini lesson Asks questions Designs a worksheet/ homework task Creates a powerpoint
