Helping students to “demand high” of themselves: #KELTchat Preview for Sunday, September 29th at 8:00 p.m.

Greetings, #KELTchatters! As September comes to a close, we welcome everyone to join us this Sunday evening for our final #KELTchat of the month. This chat’s topic is “Helping students to ‘demand high’ of themselves.”

For a good understanding of “demand high,” I highly recommend the Demand High ELT blog. Demand high focuses on the potential for deep learning by each individual student. Demand high teaching explores how teachers can challenge each student to stimulate more learning.

In our #KELTchat, we can explore how to help learners challenge themselves. Some questions to think about:

  • What does “demand high” learning look like?
  • Can students do it on their own? What questions would they need to answer for themselves?
  • Have you any experiences to share about helping students challenge themselves?
  • What can we do to help students push themselves further than they think they can go?
  • How can we involve students in tweaking activities to stimulate further learning?
  • What ideas or advice would you share regarding “demand high learning?”

The following is shamelessly plagiarized from @thebreathyvowel: The above is of course a guideline, so please bring any other questions, ponderings or flashes of inspiration with you to the chat. See you Sunday night at 8pm!

If you’d like to join us, but you’re not sure how, check out the how to tab at the top of the page. If you’re still not sure, send me a tweet (@annehendler) or stop by the Facebook page and we’ll be happy to help you.
