Teaching styles and cultural relevance

  1. 1. CULTURAL RELEVANCE =
  2. 2. COURSE MATERIAL * CULTURALLY OFFENSIVE • CULTURALLY INSENSITIVE (BUT CAN BE ADAPTED) • RELEVANCE: SET IN A SOCIAL CONTEXT TO GET STUDENT INTEREST AND AID UNDERSTANDING • Source: Byron, M. et al. 2001.Developing Intercultural Competence in Practice.
  3. 3. TEACHING STYLE TEACHER TALK BEWARE: “TEACHER TALK”
  4. 4. STUDENT-CENTERED STYLE ANTIDOTE: ELICIT, GESTURE, TAKE NOTES, PEER CORRECTION, SCRIBES, DEFL ECT QUESTIONS TO NOMINATED STUDENTS
  5. 5. “FISHBOWL” INTERACTIVE SPEAKING ACTIVITY• A few students arrange their seat in a circle (centre circle). Around them the remainder of the students also form an outer circle. The centre circle discusses a topic. Students from the outer circle are given the option to ‘tap out’ those in the “Fishbowl” in order to exchange places. This is an excellent technique if you find that in more general discussion one or two students tend to dominate the proceedings.• Adapted from http://www.ssdd.bcu.ac.uk/crumpton/interactive-teaching/key-concept- map/fishbowl.htm
