What You Can Learn From My PLN Quiz #4 (June 28)

Part of the series: My Personal Learning Network


Colin Graham

Catherine Dorgan

Harini Dwi

Janet Bianchini

These teachers answered all of the questions correctly on the June 23rd PLN quiz, and will soon be receiving their Macademia Takenoko no Sato and White Chocoloate Kit Cat care packages :-)

Now, for the next quiz. If you want to read about the motivation behind these PLN quizzes, go here. (PLN stands for Personal Learning Network. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, read “What is a PLN, anyway?”)

Tips: Read the posts before you take the quiz. The main point here is to direct you to some excellent reading. You’ll also do better on the quiz. If you don’t like your initial score, you can take the quiz again. Again, the main point is learning, not grading.

As with the previous quizzes, at the end of five days,  I will draw five names from the pool of quiz takers who answer all five questions correctly. This time, the five “winners” will receive a package consisting of limited edition dark chocolate and almond Kit Kats and Horn cookies (sugar cookies wrapped around chocolate).  Of course, if you’re in Japan I’ll be happy to substitute an “American” prize, and if you don’t care for sweets at all, I’ll substitute a non-food prize :-)

Good luck and have fun!

The deadline to be eligible for the drawing is 11 pm on Saturday, July 3rd, in Japan. That’s 2 pm GMT time. For other times, check here.

This 5-5-5 quiz is based on the following five posts:

Paired and Group Writing Activity by Sean Banville

Teaching English in Brazil by Henrick Oprea

Being an EFL Teacher by Eva Büyüksimkeşyan

The Art of Teaching by Aniya Adly (aka The English Teacher)
