TEACHING MODE
Hear, repeat, use, do, combine, use in speech, sentence, address a colleague, pass unwanted word to volunteer – even the teacher. Individual repetition by each of what teacher constructed.
2000 years prior to Skinner’s learning mode cone, there was Confucius learning pyramid that I used:












COMPARE AND CONTRAST – adjectives
COMPARE AND CONTRAST – self-made dictionary with synonyms and antonyms free exchange, in class and at home as home-work. Each reads his/her homework aloud, standing up. A reward for every word that meets the standard.
PROPER NAMES (NOUNS):
VERBS (REGULAR AND IRREGULAR), singular, plural
AUXILIARY VERBS (TO BE – TO HAVE)

BASICS OUTLINE

1. Class entry smiling and enjoying with a smile whatever surrounds us (Sunny day, cloudy day, rain, wind) Shapes of clouds resembling animals, bikes, cars, stimulating imagination

2. Choosing the color of the day – any color (e.g. white to be used as white tiger, white bear, white cat white cloud, white paper)

3. Endowing group with name of what the class finds most enjoyable in football-like huddle, commonly – so today we are white tigers and we enjoy what tigers enjoy – other qualities associated with the day’s mascot. (Every day different mascot, different source of joy). Passing out paper gold stars to the most active students or groups not encourage competition but collaboration of groups (3 to 6 in each group).


SHOW AND TELL

1. Bring an empty sack into the class, ask students to put unimportant objects in the sack (pens, pencils, a key, a hair-pin, a coin, a toy – any object or carry props in another bag. Teach the meaning of the word mistake, show that the sack is full of mistakes in English language. Select a volunteer to say anything about that day’s mascot (tiger) find a mistake – remove one item from the sack, keep repeating till the sack is empty, visually affirming that there are no more mistakes to be made through work and practice – since the sack of mistakes is now empty.

2. Select two or three props and assign adjectives either obvious or metaphorical – find commonality with that day’s mascot. Allow whole class to add one more quality in a written or verbal form. Every mistake returns some other prop into the sack of mistakes.


3. PRIVATE: During my lifetime I have visited every single European country and every single North, Central and South American country as well as some 75% of the countries in Africa – allowing me to better and faster understand local customs, food, dances, geography, speech patterns, body language, joys, fears, etc.
