In my English Curriculum Studies classes this week students should all be bringing in a bag containing five items that they think symbolise what they want to be as an English teacher. This activity is supposed to help stimulate discussion about discourses and people’s different philosophies of teaching. I’m going to do the activity too – so far I have a couple of ideas, but in the meantime I thought I would post this collage that I recently made as a visual representation of English teachers/teaching:
It was made using polyvore.com a favourite site of mine where you can make digital collages using ‘clippings’ from images on other sites. If you’ve never seen it then go check out some of the sets I’ve collected that I think could relate to the school curriculum – I hope it gets you thinking!
