4.3 Your Learning and Teaching Materials

British Council Logo
It's time to think about how the ideas we present in this course (could) relate to your own teaching materials.

Activity

For this activity, choose a lesson that you taught very recently and think about your students' exposure to English during that lesson, as follows.

    ● Did they hear you speak or read something you wrote? If they did, how would you describe your own variety of English and the register or style(s) you used in class?

    ● Did they listen to each other or read anything written by other students? If they did, how would you describe their varieties of English and the register or style(s) they used in class?

    ● Did they hear or read anything from their textbook? If they did, how would you describe the varieties of English and the register or style(s) presented in the book?

    ● Did they hear or read anything from an alternative source (perhaps an online video you showed them, a magazine article you photocopied, a guest speaker you invited, a website they suggested)? If they did, how would you describe the varieties of English and the register or style(s) presented in these sources?
