    How To Foster Autonomy Ppp.Version 1 How To Foster Autonomy Ppp.Version 1 Presentation Transcript

    • HOW TO FOSTER AUTONOMY IN THE CLASSROOM
      • “ You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.”
      • Actually…
      • … You can!
      • How?
      • FIRST-
      • MAKE HIM THIRSTY!!
    • You can lead a student to English but you can’t make him think.”
      • Actually… You can!
      • How?
      • FIRST-
      • MAKE HIM INTERESTED/CURIOUS!!
    • Understanding Autonomy
      • ‘ However good a teacher be, students will never learn a language – or anything else – unless they aim to learn outside as well as during class time’.
      • Jeremy Harmer
    • REASONS TO PROMOTE AUTONOMOUS LEARNING
      • Language is too complex and varied.
      • It takes a long time before they have had the kind of exposure for real progress.
      • A teacher will not always be around to help.
    • How can we develop learner autonomy?
      • Identify your students’ learning strategies.
        • Questionnaires, charts, will be helpful.
      • Help your students develop different learning strategies.
        • Note taking, organizing their homework assignments, how to use a dictionary, etc.
    • LEARNING STRATEGIES
      • TECHNIQUES STUDENTS USE TO LEARN:
      • METACOGNITIVE STRATEGIES:
      • Planning, evaluating and monitoring.
      • COGNITIVE STRATEGIES:
      • Actually doing the learning, guessing words, repeating.
      • SOCIAL STRATEGIES:
      • Working with others, asking for help etc.
    • Learner Training
      • In the classroom:
      • Have reflection time on the way they learn.
      • Give them strategies for dealing with different kinds of activities (e.g. ‘ Read the title… what is the listening/reading about?’ )
      • Ask students to describe their favorite lessons. Say which lessons or parts of lessons they found the easiest or most difficult and why.
    • Learner Training
      • Outside the classroom:
        • Students create their own vocabulary notebook.
        • Staying in touch with the language:
          • TV, radio, movies, magazines, books, etc.
        • Show your students how they can use different websites.
    • Learning a foreign language without good guidance is similar to sailing without a good map. When teachers are aware of the importance of learning styles and learning strategies, they can provide a good map to their students.
      • LEARNER TRAINING
      • Reflection- helps students reflect on the way they learn.
      • HOMEWORK
      • Make sure they are student-driven.
      • LEARNING JOURNALS
      • Diaries of their learning experiences so they can reflect on their lessons “we hope”.
      POINTS TO REMEMBER
    • POINTS TO REMEMBER
      • SELF-ACCESS CENTER
      • To use as part of the course or in their spare time.
      • WHEN THE COURSE ENDS….
      • *Explain why they should stay in touch with the language. Give ideas: read a magazine, see a movie, use the internet “all in ENGLISH”.
    • AND REMEMBER… *A good teacher is not a person who can develop a student’s memory so that he can repeat facts and pass tests. *A good teacher is a person who teaches students to question, to think, and to reason. *Teaching is a helping profession. It is a commitment to making a difference in students’ lives. * Teaching is primarily a matter of love.
