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.
