Do you have a favorite post from Teaching Village?

This morning, I got up, made my coffee, and sat down at the computer to see what had happened while I was asleep. On Twitter, I saw a message from Christopher Wilson:

Chris Wilson

I wasn’t very familiar with Christopher’s blog, so with my second cup of coffee I headed over to ELTSquared.co.uk to take a peek and discovered that he has already collected favorite posts from the blogs of two teachers I really admire, Jason Renshaw and Josette LeBlanc for his #oldeltpost meme. (If you aren’t sure what a meme is, you can learn more about it here, but basically it’s an idea or topic that is shared online, often using a hashtag like #oldeltpost.)

Wow! What a great idea!

Someone was kind enough to nominate Teaching Village for this same treatment. Now it’s up to you. Do you have a favorite post? If so, here are the guidelines for sharing it (taken from Christopher’s blog):

Step 1: Visit Barbara’s blog
Step 2: Find a great blog post (this could be one you found in the past, one of the recent ones or you could use the tags/search features to find one)
Step 3: Send a link to me (and everyone else) by either the comments section (go here). On twitter with the hashtag #oldeltpost and @mrchrisjwilson
Step 4: In a weeks time I’ll post all the links together on this blog.
Step 5: Suggest another blog to do the same to next month.

I must admit, I’m quite curious to see which posts you have enjoyed since this blog started in 2009! Be sure to share the link to your favorite post as a comment on Christopher’s post about this challenge, not in the comments here :-)

While you’re visiting ELT Squared, why not subscribe to the blog so that you can be sure to receive future posts about old ELT gems — I have! It’s a great way to get a list of recommended reading. I’ve been enjoying revisiting old treasures on Jason’s and Josette’s blogs, and look forward to seeing more. Actually, I’ve had a great time browsing Christopher’s blog this morning, and am happy that this Twitter meme introduced me to a great new blog. I love morning surprises like that!
