Scott Thornbury on doing a Dogme lesson
3 years ago, in my DELTA days I did Experimental Practice lesson and wrote an assignment on Dogme principles and I was really delighted to watch this recently recorded video as a message from my past:
Despite getting Destinction for that assignment, I think I was not able to give the rationale as clearly as Scott did it in this video:
‘Learning opportunities happen best when learners are given some control over the content and direction of the lesson’ and then. saying about the teacher’s role: ‘to provide opportunities for them to take that control but be present to respond to their opportunities and give them the language they need’. Nicely put.
