ELT METHODOLOGY (I) – 202WEEK 5I like the activity (Don’t Panic) because it mentions almosteverything about how to manage a classroom, how to use the bodylanguage effectively, how to encourage my learners to speak andkeep speaking English and importance of eye contact in detail. Firstwe, as English teachers of future, should know that ClassroomManagement has an big impact on education. We should take careevery detail like sitting arrangement,using our voice, equipmentsand blackboard use to create a good atmosphere for teachingEnglish. If we can arrange these details properly, they make both usand our students feel secure. And that security facilitates thelearning process. Second, the body language consists of bodyposture, gestures, eye movements etc… “It is said that humancommunication consists of 93% body language, while only 7%communication consists of words.” This sentence is enough to showhow important it is. “Eyes never lie.” Eye contact, a part of bodylanguage, can provide social and emotional information about ourstudents.I think I will never write something to this part : “ I dislike theactivity....” because if it would not be a good activity, you would notshow us. So lets take this part out of the template
I have a difficulty in figuring out how to use eye contactefficiently. It is a canal of emotions but a bit dangerous if I cannotmanage the looking time. I must pay more attention to this issue(these sentences do not mean that you could not explain itsufficiently, I am just a bit worried about using it)I suppose I need to focus more on knowledge, personality andauthority to keep my learners in my hand. Moreover I need to focusmore on Body Language because it is the mirror of mind of a personand gives some clues about students. On the other hand I must havea “B Plan” in my left pocket. (I have these information above in myright pocket). So,I DO NOT PANIC..!
