Wondering about whiteboards


Have you seen this amazing post by Peter Pun on whiteboards in the classroom? It’s actually a ready-made teacher training session, complete with activities and examples. I would strongly recommend it for self-study and start with diagnostics: look at your saved board or picture from a last lesson. When a student asked you a word, did you simply board it? Or did you mark the stress, other pronunciation difficulties, what it collocates with, its opposites? The opportunities are endless, and if we’re not using them, our students might well be missing out on useful learning. (Mine certainly sometimes do, but I’m working on it!)
