Teaching less, recycling more

recycling language with cubes

In an education environment that screams ‘More! More! More!’ sometimes the smart teaching move can be to teach less. If you don’t have to spend your entire class explaining new language, students can spend more time recycling, reinforcing, and expanding the language they learn.

If this topic interests you, I will be giving an online webinar for Oxford University Press on Thursday, May 8th, at 12:30 BST. (That’s 7:30 am in New York, 8:30 am in Brazil, 3:30 pm in UAE, and 8:30 pm in Japan). The webinar is free, but you must register to attend. Even if you can’t attend live, registering means that you’ll receive a link to the recording after the webinar. OUP usually closes registration 24 hours before the online event, so I encourage you to register soon if you would like to be included.

If you’d like to read more about this teaching approach, and how it might work in your own teaching context, you might enjoy guest posts I’ve recently written for the iTDi Blog and for the OUP ELT Global Blog:
