Let's make our classes more DISNEY like :)
When it's time to study, sometimes, it's boring time but today... it was creative time, at least for me!
As part of the online course I'm taking at the University of Oregon, "TESOL Methods", I had to discuss Bloom's Taxonomy. Within the discussion thread, one of my colleagues Mrs. Nunene from Nairobi told us about the WALT and WILF acronyms. WALT is "we are learning to" and WILF is "what I'm looking for".
When I read the post, I thought of adding the picture of Walt Disney so as to make it funnier. However, after reflecting on that, I came to the conclusion that having his picture was going to be boring. So... what happened? Another acronym came to my mind... DISNEY!!!
What is DISNEY? It's something we - teachers - should do in class!
Discipline We all want our students to keep quiet and calm. They can move around, play, sing, among others, but, keeping discipline.
I know that DISNEY is not new for tons of experienced teachers; I just liked the idea of playing with words!
Thanks for reading! Smiles, Maria :)
