Dear fellow teachers
A happy and creative new school year!
I hope you are adequately rested and ready for the challenges ahead!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is the best time in history to be a teacher. With a vast array of resources at our disposal and attractive ones at that, the time is not far away that books will be a thing of the past. Enjoy some of them and start the new year with a bang!
Reading: Life is about overcoming challenges. Exceptional people do that and more: they fight against all odds. Here's the story of 11 of them.
Grammar: how are your students getting on with their irregular verbs? Play this game and find out!
Crafts: a quick and easy tissue paper tree. Ideal for your pre-juniors.
Drawing: sketch a baby turtle with the letter “p”! Difficult? Impossible? Not with Steve Harpster’s help.
Training: your unique chance to become a web-designer beckons! Attend this seminar and become the master (or at least the confident administrator) of an increasingly connected world.
CDs of the week.
A. How did your students fare English-wise during their vacation? They probably need some revision. We might need to deal with possible weaknesses and plan some remedial sessions. Here’s the perfect tool: The Welcome Back series, richer in content and variety than any coursebook revision unit. It comes in nine levels and you can download its syllabus from my site. €4 per level, €30 for the whole series, €25 for the “9 in 1” CD.
B. Brand new! Irregular verbs for B and C senior. One of its kind. €15 per level, €25 for both.
