ABOUT YOURSELVES
1. Where were you born and where did you grow up?
2. What languages do you know? How did you learn each,
how well do you speak, and when do you use each? What
did you learn from family members or travelling or online,
and what did you learn in language classes?
3. What do you like about English studies? Why are you
planning to teach English?
“The mind is an
instrument. You first
sharpen it then use
it”
A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
One of the most FATAL,
ERRONEOUS and
DANGEROUS conceptions
ever introduced into the
theory of education
A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
“The mind is an instrument. You
first sharpen it then use it”
The mind is never
passive; it is a
perpetual activity,
delicate,
receptive,
responsive to
stimulus. You
cannot postpone
its life until you
have sharpened it.
A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
Whatever interest
attaches to your
subject-matter
must be evoked
here and now;
whatever powers
you are
strengthening in
the pupil, must be
exercised here and
now
A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
Whatever
possibilities of
mental life your
teaching should
impart, must be
exhibited here and
now
A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
“The mind is an instrument. You
first sharpen it then use it”
That is the golden
rule of education,
and a very difficult
rule to follow
here and now hic et nunc ici et maintenant
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE TEACHER AND THE STUDENTS?
▸ teaching and learning happen in the classroom, not
before or after
▸ the trace of a class (powerpoint, student notes) is only a
record of teaching and learning
▸ students participate in class rather than sit passively or
inattentively
▸ most student questions arise during class, not before, not
after, not via e-mail

‣ USE THE ENGLISH YOU
HAVE, NOT WHAT YOU CAN
COMPOSE WITH TIME AND
DICTIONARIES AND
FRIENDS
‣ GET INTO THE SPIRIT OF
ACTIVITIES, DON’T JUST
WAIT FOR TIME TO PASS
CLASSROOM POLICY - PEDAGOGICAL CONTRACT
▸ PLAGIARISM: it’s not OK to pass someone else’s work off as your own.
▸ If you use words or ideas from any source (website, book) you
need to cite these in the text (with quotation marks) and at the end
(in a reference list)
▸ don’t recycle a friend’s work or your own work for another class
▸ LANGUAGE: it’s not OK to use language which makes others feel
disrepected or unsafe
▸ RESPECT: do your best to arrive and leave on time, to not disturb
others, and to adopt an attentive attitude, without distraction
▸ NEUTRALITY: I will police plagiarism and inappropriate language and
behaviour in class, but my grades reflect the quality of your work in
accordance with guidelines for assignments

‣ READ EMAILS CAREFULLY;
DON’T EXPECT INDIVIDUAL
MESSAGES
‣ CONSIDER YOUR ROLE IN THE
CLASS:
‣ ARE YOU CONTRIBUTING TOO
MUCH/NOT ENOUGH?
‣ ARE YOU EXPECTING
SPECIAL ATTENTION?

What did you learn from family members or travelling or online, and what did you learn in language classes? 3. What do you like about English studies? Why are you planning to teach English?
  • 6. “The mind is an instrument. You first sharpen it then use it” A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
  • 7. One of the most FATAL, ERRONEOUS and DANGEROUS conceptions ever introduced into the theory of education A N Whitehead (1861-1947) “The mind is an instrument. You first sharpen it then use it”
  • 8. The mind is never passive; it is a perpetual activity, delicate, receptive, responsive to stimulus. You cannot postpone its life until you have sharpened it. A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
  • 9. Whatever interest attaches to your subject-matter must be evoked here and now; whatever powers you are strengthening in the pupil, must be exercised here and now A N Whitehead (1861-1947)
  • 10. Whatever possibilities of mental life your teaching should impart, must be exhibited here and now A N Whitehead (1861-1947) “The mind is an instrument. You first sharpen it then use it”
  • 11. That is the golden rule of education, and a very difficult rule to follow here and now hic et nunc ici et maintenant

  • 16. CLASSROOM POLICY - PEDAGOGICAL CONTRACT ▸ PLAGIARISM: it’s not OK to pass someone else’s work off as your own. ▸ If you use words or ideas from any source (website, book) you need to cite these in the text (with quotation marks) and at the end (in a reference list) ▸ don’t recycle a friend’s work or your own work for another class ▸ LANGUAGE: it’s not OK to use language which makes others feel disrepected or unsafe ▸ RESPECT: do your best to arrive and leave on time, to not disturb others, and to adopt an attentive attitude, without distraction ▸ NEUTRALITY: I will police plagiarism and inappropriate language and behaviour in class, but my grades reflect the quality of your work in accordance with guidelines for assignments
