    Teaching Tips 6: Using chants, rhymes and rounds

    Music is part of the English language, even if we don’t realise. (Chanting) Concentration. Concentration. Concentration, are you ready? Concentration, now beginning. Rachael. Concentration. Are you ready? Concentration now beginning. And so they’ve had the same words twice, first time they’ve stressed every syllable and then the second time they’ve condensed it already to two beats. So when they’re putting a name, they have to decide which syllable they’re going to stress and how they’re going to fit it into the rhyme and this is of course what we do with stress timing naturally as English speakers. Concentration. Concentration. Concentration, now beginning. Concentration, are you ready? Rachael. Stacy. (Laughing) So…

    Why Parents Should Play Video Games With Their Kids

    – We don’t really play games with our parents. – Oh, game playing, um… – Probably, maybe once a month. – Video games, I usually am like, no. – I haven’t really played anything since the early 90’s. – Once a week? – Mmm. – [Kid] No, Dad. (soft playful music) No, no. – Family learning, let me think. (chuckling) Let me think. When her and some kids get together to share experiences and explore the world together.

    Amplification and Liquefaction Animation (Educational)

    The motion of similar buildings on different bedrock will be exaggerated to show the arrivals of P, S, and surface waves from a regional earthquake. Three consecutive seismograms will show the changing frequency and amplitude resulting from changing bedrock. The initial P wave arrives with a compressive bump and rarely causes much damage. The shearing S wave introduces a side-to-side motion that can throw loose objects to the floor and may crack walls. The rolling surface waves are the most damaging where water-saturated sand is present. As surface waves enter unconsolidated sediment they increase in size causing buildings to roll. If not engineered for the motion they can crack and…

    MISD Future of Education

    One of the things when you talk about the future of education we sometimes have this way of talking about it internally, but it’s important that we bring our parents into that conversation because it’s their children. Our world is changing so much and yet our education is not. Our education is what it was over a hundred years ago.

We should be advocating for different ways of teaching our kids. If you do the…

    Teaching Accents and Dialects

    ‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. ‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!’ He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood a while in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! I’m professor of dramatic arts and I’m the associate head of the drama department…
