‘English Teaching Knowledge’ by Michael Griffin

Michael Griffin’s latest blog post is titled “English Teaching Knowledge”.

Michael says, “There are a good many ideas out there about what it takes to be a good English teacher and I’d like to share some of them here.How can anyone just point out the important factors in teaching English in just a few hundred words?I’m not sure if this can be done as I intended it to be but I will try.
Student-centered learning is key. Many T’s are all about the TTT (teacher talking time) which should be reduced. Aim for 20%.I+1  is also an incredibly important factor. We need to make sure all our lessone are pitched at this level.
Students work better when their affective filters are reduced. This is something teachers need to be concerned with.”
