There are always new ways to present an idea.
See, this book is telling me that students of elementary school age ordinarily have great difficult understanding concepts of time, in the "Our Working World" program, the suggestion is made is rather than talk about 33 years ago, students substitute the idea of 1 parent ago. Thus, 66 years would be 2 parents ago and 100 years would be 3 parents ago.
Other interesting conections are compare with comtemporary inventions, "this happened in the pre-color TV age...etc.
I am not saying here that you must parrot someone´s else style, words, or follow obediently all that is in books. You can borrow some ideas, add some of yourself or mix the two.
Ah, and in the process you can assess your own progress, by recording your class or even inviting a friend to take part in your class (actively as an pupil, or only observing you for some flaws as you having a pet student, favorites I mean), he/she take notice of your work. We are always lax in judging our own performance.
Well, taking classes or being well informed on didactic makes no harm, if you have friends in this line of occupation drop by and take some advice (but judge yourself what suits best for you and your pupils).
Well, the rest is in class; take a look on the previous post (I very appreciated the help of our buddy teacher) it is very interesting and has a very enriching tips, moreover experiences of a professional like this counts a lot.
See you later.
