Welcome to episode 58 of The PE Umbrella Podcast. This week I delve right into step four from 'The Five Steps to a Winning Mindset', as highlighted by Professor Damian Hughes in his latest bestselling book. This episode is all about 'Practical Language'. I stress the importance of not only 'simplicity' when giving instructions, but the practicality of the language we use with the students we teach. I reflect on my own language when teaching and highlight case studies when my language has been too abstract, and examples when I have perhaps got it just right. During the episode I also answer the questions... - What is practical language? - Why is practical language essential for learning? This really is a short reflection episode that packs a big punch. It really did have me questioning my own teaching right now, as well as my past experiences. I am a notorious 'ranter' and having recently worked hard cutting down on my teacher talk time, this gave me another dimension to now consider that will impact greatly on the quality of my teaching. So before you begin, ask yourself...How practical is your language when teaching? So what are you waiting for? Come and join me Under the Umbrella.
In Episode 57 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, I delve right into the third step from 'The Five Steps to a Winning Mindset', as highlighted by Professor Damian Hughes, but with a slight twist. Initially, my focus was going to be all around 'Emotion', but after digging deeper into the book, I decided to base my reflection around 3 key points that contribute towards delivering a powerful lesson and creating a purposeful learning environment. These 3 areas are... CONNECTION ATTENTION INTENTION This episode is a brain dump of sorts, as I reflect on my own practice in these areas as well as ask you, the listeners, questions about your own teaching. How are you forging and building relationships? Do you honestly show an interest in your students? How do you get the attention of your class? Is there an intention and purpose to your teaching? All of these questions arise from this episode and as always I hope there is at least one golden nugget of information you can take away and think about. Please do get in touch and share your own experiences and thoughts because I love hearing from you!
