TED TALK - Rita Pierson: "Every Kid Needs a Champion"

Hi, there!!!,

Last week, I was surfing on the internet, actually looking for inspiration, when I met Rita Pierson's TED TALK by chance, every teacher should watch the video, it's really worthwhile!!! Rita Pierson has been working as a Teacher for over 40 years. I'd like to stand out some parts of her inspiring speech: 
Kids don't learn from people they don't like", ...
"I have had classes that were so low, so academically deficient, that I cried. I wondered, "How am I going to take this group, in nine months, from where they are to where they need to be? And .. it was awfully hard. How do I raise the self-esteem of a child and his academic achievement at the same time? 

One year I told all my students, "You were chosen to be in my class because I am the best teacher and you are the best students". One of the students said, "Really?"

Teaching and learning should bring joy... Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be".

SpeaK UP!!! - A Very Special Object

Hi, there!!!, 

Last week, I asked my students (from 2nd year of ESO) to bring a special object for them. Once again, it has been a very enriching experience, they brought some cards, bracelets and some big toys ;) All of them took part, they got involved really well, and above all, they were speaking English! The language assistant and I asked them: Why is it special for you? Who gave you this? When did they give you this? Why? We just tried to elicit the whole story behind their particular object.

As you can see, it's a very simple oral task, they used the Past Simple, they learned new words, ... AWESOME!!! because Learning English is always Fun!!!  :)

PS Thank you, Westley!
