|BOARD USE |
1. Plan your board work ahead of time. Decide what examples you need to illustrate your target language / structure and include them in your lesson plan. That way you will have clear and effective models for the students to copy.
4. Always check your board work for careless mistakes such as spelling, grammar, etc.
5. Always give students enough time to copy down what’s on the board. With lower levels especially, check students' notebooks to make sure their spelling is correct.
6. When teaching vocabulary, indicate syllable stress and part of speech and provide examples of how the word is used.
7. Provide a substitution table whenever appropriate.
9. Remember, the board isn’t just for writing. You can attach pictures and other graphics to it with blue tack.
10. A picture is worth a thousand words. Use stick drawings to elicit / test vocabulary. Write the word in later.
11. Keep it simple.
