The ABC of ELT

How do you Feel after a Bad Lesson?

For the next ELTChat podcast I want to do something a little different. I want to collect a group of small audio samples from teachers around one of the topics we had an ELTChat on. The topic would be

How teachers feel after a bad lesson and how they transform failures into progress

If you have a short snippet you’d like to say (no half hour speeches please) then you can use the website vocaroo to record the audio and then send me a link to access your audio. I’ll grab some great soundbites and put them into a compilation. If you’d rather send me audio via another means then that’s okay too, I just wanted to suggest a method that anyone with a computer can use.

Obviously, the sooner you can send me the audio the better (and the more likely I am to use it!) but there is a bit of time for you to have a think about the topic and leave your thoughts.

Thanks for helping out.

  3. Hey Chris – here’s my submission. It’s 5:38…too long? Dunno, but feel free to chop it up any way you wish if you choose to use any of it. Audio here: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1cFuvyIYigg Nice idea and hope you get a lot of people sharing!…I originally suggested that ELTchat topic because it seems like a really important issue in the (burnout-prone) lives of teachers, yet – I’ve always felt, anyway – it’s something rarely discussed between most of us. It’s as if we all feel the need to “soldier on!”, pretend the anxiety/doubt that sometimes (or maybe often) gets poked and prodded in visceral (!) ways by particularly disappointing or “bad” class sessions isn’t the elephant in the room. Anyway, I’m looking forward to your final product with this. 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot and I agree it was a great and important topic to discuss. It really depends how many people take part if it’s too long or not. I’m not sure exactly how this will go so we’ll have to see!
