We’ve created this blog to share experiences and discuss ideas about how teachers can help learners practise English more outside class and learn more effectively in class, through taking a coaching approach in the classroom.
We wrote a series of 6 articles in ETP magazine about this. Click on the links above to read short versions of the articles. We have also prepared some material which helps students practise English on their own outside class.
We are interested to hear your responses to these ideas and some of your experiences. Here are some questions to get us started. Please use the comment box below to answer them.
- Do you consider any aspects of your teaching to be ‘coaching’. What?
- If you have used this approach with your learners, what results have you had?
- In you opinion, what are the differences between a coach and a teacher?
- What are the pros and cons of taking a coaching rather than a teaching role?
