Pirate turned teacher


To continue the topic of hooks and anchors: have you read Dave Burgess‘s book ‘Teach like a pirate’? PIRATE is an acronym that stands for Passion, Immersion, Rapport, Ask and Analyze, Transformation, Enthusiasm. It’s not just a rehash of the tenets of the communicative approach: it’s inspiring, energetic and a bit wacky – in a good way. To get an idea of ‘pirate teaching’, I really really recommend reading this innovator teacher’s series of posts about implementing ideas from the book; and here is a pdf of the best pirate hooks from 2 Smart Wenches that you can start applying straight away.

Ahoy, mateys! (sorry, couldn’t resist)
