Teachers Workshop on DH – Guest Post by Diana England (IH Torres Vedras, Portugal)

Here is an interesting approach to a teachers workshop on the theme of Demand High. It took place  on Friday 23rd November 2012, and comes from Diana England, Director of Studies at International House, Torres Vedras, Portugal.  She designed and ran the session, and all the materials you need are here, but feel free to adapt.


What follows are:

1.. Her overview of her setting

2. Her session notes

3. The ppt she used

4. The collated participant results.

Note how Diana uses a 3 x 7 grid to tease out differences between too difficult, under-challenging, and doable demand, and in the other dimensions she has the four skills and the three language systems. See also how the ppt illustrates and sets up the tasks

We find this a useful thinking device and a great resource.

  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My
    blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. Thank you for every other informative website.
    Where else may just I am getting that type of info written in such a
    perfect way? I’ve a undertaking that I am just now working on, and I’ve been on the
    look out for such information.

So ... What Do You Think?
