Spotlight in the classroom 7/2013
Spotlight in the classroom is a selection of ideas for using Spotlight in your lessons. It is free to teachers who subscribe to our magazine.
Fun and productive
We're back again this month with more hands-on ideas for using Spotlight texts and articles with your class: a radio commercial, a student-centred dictation, a jigsaw listening exercise and an interactive gap-fill activity (see Copy file). There's also a card game to practise situational responses in our online file.
Our July reviews provide highly interesting material: one book will teach students to develop good learner strategies, while another "makes learning English an exploration of the world".
Lastly, we are pleased to introduce Catherine Guigui, an American teacher who studied in Israel, went on to earn her master's degree in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University in New York, and ended up in French Guiana, where she has been living since 1986. Turn to page 5 to learn about her teaching there.
We wish you lots of fun with this issue! If you have any feedback for us, we would be more than happy to hear from you.
