As I get more experience with teaching, the more I find that I have less time to really self-reflect on my teaching. This post is just to remind myself and a motivator to really keep up with it. Because my students deserve it.
On November 6th, my school held a school festival unlike I have yet to see in my teaching career. Due to the immense size of the school (roughly 950 students), the school was able to put on a 5 hours long theatre production ranging from traditional Korean drum to plays. Nearly all school staffs were involved. It only took about 3 weeks of practice and rehearsal for everything to come together. Truly impressive considering the teachers and students still had to make progress with the curriculum. I find that Korean elementary school student to be very vocal (very loud at times), and passionate. My Grade 3 students decided to sing about the English lessons they learned. I believe that these experiences are valuable for the students as it helps to fortify the students authentic learning. Overall, very well done!
Recently came across these amazing YouTube lectures about how video games can positively impact education. Surprisingly they discuss about how games can be a great tool for teacher to engage students in an individual manner and practice the differentiation to a greater degree.
