Musings on Teachers Being Mad!

Teachers should be mad from time to time.

Being mad means …

… being creative, innovative, and inventive

… being a rebel

… acting and thinking outside the box

… breaking the rules occasionally

… coming up with ideas, practices, and approaches that were never tested before

… being brave to try something new that might or might not work

… acting from “What if”

… stepping back and asking oneself “What if there is a simpler and better way to teach?”

… being spontaneous, unplanned, and off-the-cuff

ditching that textbook (1) and creating your own unique teaching resources

… ditching that lesson plan to attend to your students’ questions and needs

… being an artful educator (2)

… being experimental, unorthodox, and unconventional from time to time

… being playful by nurturing a playful learning environment

… taking creative risks

… embracing failures as valuable learning opportunities

… being courageous to be rubbish (3)

… embracing imperfection

… challenging the status quo

putting yourself on the hook (4)

… being fearless, daring, and venturous

Being a MAD teacher means being able to Make A Difference to your students

Being mad is a good thing after all!

Being a mad teacher means being able to Make A Difference (MAD) to your students

Arabic Reader Wise & Witty Quotes about … Diplomacy (الدبلوماسية)

A selection of 7+ Arabic quotations that can be used in the language classroom by students (and teachers) as prompts for writing and conversation practice.

Included also: → Teaching Tips | 7+ Ways to Use … Quotations in the Language Classroom

7+ Ways to Use …Quotations in the Language Classroom (Teaching Tips)

  1. Display quotes as posters on your classroom wall for motivation, inspiration, and regular exposure to the target language (TL). 
  2. Use quotes as prompts for writing practice. Ask your students to write about “What does it mean to you?” “How can you apply it to your own life?”.
  3. Encourage your students to paraphrase or summarise the quotes into their own words. 
  4. Use quotes as conversation starters for speaking practice (See sample questions in tip #2).
  5. Encourage your students to come up with their own quotes in the TL to be shared for discussion and peer correction.
  6. Make it a habit to embed quotes of authentic sayings, proverbs, and passages in your teaching material design and writing. 
  7. Use quotes as authentic reading material to contextualise specific vocabulary and language items you are planning to teach. 
  8. Use quotes to create a continuous immersive language experience in the classroom by frequently displaying a “Quote of the Week” or “Quote of the Day”.

Conference Workshop (June 2021) | “I See What You Mean”: Training teachers to become competent visual teachers in the Arabic classroom

BATA Inaugural International Conference

  • Date: 24 & 25 June 2021
  • Location: Online
  • Organiser: The British Association of Teachers of Arabic (BATA) and the University of Leeds

Title of the Workshop        

  • “I See What You Mean”: Training teachers to become competent in visual teachers in the Arabic classroom

Key words      

  • Visual teaching, visual literacy, visual-rich technologies, eLearning, teacher training

Sub-Themes

  • Curriculum design and development
  • Teaching Arabic and professional development
  • Technology-based e-learning Arabic

Presentation Abstract

 We live in a world, where we became predominantly visual communicators (and teachers) and where the wise Henrik Ibsen said: “A thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed.” which then was changed by Tess Flanders to “A picture is worth a thousand words’ applies more than ever. This is equally true for Arabic learners and teachers who are submerged in visual imagery such as images, videos, emojis, avatar, infographics and other visual aids.

Visual aids have proven to be a popular teaching aid, allowing teachers and students alike ample opportunities to express their creativity in creating teacher- and student-generated resources.

This paper aims to explore the power, impact and educational benefits of visual learning and teaching from both the practitioner and student’s perspective. The paper will highlight the latest research findings and share personal reflections of many years of experimentation with visual teaching of the Arabic language and culture at the University of Edinburgh, including lessons learnt from training MFL & Arabic teachers to embrace visual teaching in their practice.

The presentation will cover discussions, namely around: 

  • How visual aids can be utilised effectively to maximise the teaching of productive and receptive language skills, vocab-building, grammar understanding, pronunciation and culture awareness, particularly relevant to the Arabic learner.
  • To examine the potential possibilities and educational value of visual imagery, digital photography, virtual realia and visual-rich technologies available.
  • To put a call to aspiring and experienced teachers to tap into the power and impact of this relatively poorly understood and utilised field (Maley, A., Keddie, J 2009) but mostly taken-for-granted and overlooked area that could positively impact teacher’s practice and learner engagement.
  • To put a case forward to teachers to rethink their material development rationale and how to shift away from static and unengaging text-based content/curricula to visually-rich and image-enhanced resource design.

Finally, the paper will introduce a number of tried-and-tested ideas and recommendations that are innovative, practical and easy to implement within and outside the Arabic classroom
