The wonderful Lindsay Clandfield and Luke Meddings are giving away their e-book “52 – a year of subversive activity for the ELT classroom” this weekend.
Go here to get it:
HERE IS THE BLURB FOR THE BOOK:
This is an activity book for language teachers unlike any you have ever seen. 52 asks the question: can one new teaching idea per week make a difference? The authors use radical texts, subversive images and lateral thinking to suggest new ways of doing things inside the classroom and to prompt teachers and learners to think differently about the world outside the classroom.
The book contains 52 activities that fit loosely into the following categories.
■Disruptions – ways of subtly disrupting the class dynamic to challenge existing power structures and explore alternatives
■Discussions – prompts and stimuli for conversations with a difference
■Images – subversive spoof ads from the media foundation Adbusters
■Language – activities critically exploring prejudice in language, slogans, social media and even English for protest signs
■Action – activities to prompt and empower your students to take action outside the classroom
■Scenarios – tired of the same old business English situations? Here we explore real-life functional language with a twist!
Also, if you do get a free copy, make sure you leave a review and support the round – the innovative e-platform for talented writers in ELT. See their bios here: http://the-round.com/creatives/
