Paraphrasing strategies: turning failure into development
You plan a lesson well, you’ve already done similar things before, you feel confident. You go into the classroom and it doesn’t work at all. Does this sound familiar? Sometimes, no matter how well we plan (and how many good questions we ask ourselves questions before setting up an activity), we can’t seem to produce the results we expect. Chiara was teaching an IELTS class recently when this happened, but despite the frustration, it turned out to be a great opportunity for development. Read her blog post to find out what happened.
