Writing in the practical, engaging style of the award-winning Making Every Lesson Count, experienced Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) teacher James A. Maxwell empowers educators with the strategies and know-how to boost their students’ attainment, engagement and enthusiasm in the MFL classroom.
Making Every MFL Lesson Count is underpinned by six pedagogical principles – challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning – and helps MFL teachers ensure that students leave their lessons with richer vocabulary, a better grasp of grammar and the skills and confidence to put the language learnt into practice. Bursting with templates, examples and flexible frameworks, this gimmick-free guide provides educators with a range of practical techniques designed to enhance their students’ linguistic awareness and help them transfer the target language into long-term memory.
James skilfully marries evidence-based practice with collective experience and, in doing so, inspires a challenging approach to secondary school MFL teaching. Furthermore, he concludes each chapter with a series of questions that will inspire reflective thought and encourage teachers to relate the content to their own classroom practice.
Suitable for MFL teachers of students aged 11–18 years.
