The 3 Wise Monkeys

The 3 Wise Monkeys

This teaching toolkit technique called “the 3 wise monkeys” has been designed based on one of my favourite proverbs “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. The idea is that students take on the role of the 3 monkeys: Mizaru, who sees nothing; Kikazaru, who hears nothing; and Iwazaru, who speaks nothing. It aims to promote challenge, listening skills, student interaction and peer teaching. Comes with student template to be adapted to any subject and any topic and teacher instruction sheet.

Developing Spontaneous Speech in MFL lessons- DIY course

Developing Spontaneous Speech in MFL lessons- DIY course

**This training is aimed at middle leaders or curriculum leaders who are looking for effective strategies to develop spontaneous language in MFL lessons and wish to implement the New MFL curriculum framework successfully. ** The course is divided in 5 parts that can be delivered as a one-off training (e.g. training day) or in individual sections (e.g. team meetings) Part 1 Exploring communication skills: opportunities to review and discuss own practice. **Part 2 Research and principles: **familiarise with communication and language acquisition methods and theories. **Part 3 Obstacles and solutions: **identify the roots causes of limited spontaneous communication and work out solutions. Part 4 Strategies: familiarise with a range of concrete classroom activities and strategies Part 5 Planning for the future: activities to ensure concrete and durable outcomes. This course is a DIY course which in a nutshell means: • One person (E.g. Head of Department, Curriculum Leader, etc.) familiarises with the course content and materials. • That same person delivers the course to others (E.g. team members), in the process s/he acquires skills as a trainer and gets the option to be rewarded with a validation certificate should s/he want to complete and submit the validation form at the end. Advantages of a DIY course: • Professional development happens at different levels, for different purposes. • It is more cost effective than traditional courses. • It prevents the headache of booking a course and is time effective. • With its flexible format, it can be delivered at any time, as a one-off course or in sections. Each part of the course contains a PowerPoint presentation, trainer guidance and handouts. Also provided are, the validation form and additional templates.
