September 25 #CdnELTchat: New Ideas for a New Term


Thank-you to everyone who joined moderators, Svetlana Lupasco (@StanzaSL) and Bonnie Jean Nicholas (@EALStories) for the first #CdnELTchat of the fall term.

Thank-you so much to our moderators and the enthusiastic participants who chatted about the following questions and more:

Q1: How do you prepare for a new term? How much planning do you do (or can you do) before the term starts?

Q2: What would your ideal classroom look/ feel/ like?

Q3. What’s on the top of your reading list for this fall?

Q4: KISS is a framework for thinking about teaching: Keep (What will you keep doing?) Improve (What can you improve?) Start (What are you going to start doing?) Stop (What will you stop doing?)

Q5: What is something that you did in your first year of teaching that you still do every term? 

Q6: What is one thing you are going to do this term to take care of yourself?
