Technologically and linguistically adventurous EFL teacher, trainer, writer and manager

Two teaching organisations, TESL Toronto and BELTA (Belgium) joined together for a free online conference on the topics of reading and writing on 8th-9th August 2014.

I was very happy to present on an area I’ve been experimenting with for a while, both as a teacher and a Russian learner, that of writing journals.

Here are my slides. Please let me know if any of the links don’t work.

All of the slides and recordings from the whole conference are available via the conference programme.


Comments on: "Making the most of student journals" (6)

  1. Hello, Sandy! Thank you again for the presentation, I found it extremely useful. It inspired me to try out journals with one of my teenage groups. (I also recommended it to my boyfriend who studies Russian 🙂

    Hi Sandy, just out of the interest, you have specified “Sevastopol, Russia” in your twitter. Is that an official line from the IH, or is it your personal preference ? Thanks, Alex


    • That’s my personal preference, since I’ve now spent as long in Sevastopol, Russia as I did in Sevastopol, Ukraine. I would be very surprised if it became part of Ukraine again.
      IH has no official line on it.

        Well, they say “never say never”.
        Although I didn’t quite get what you meant by the sentence “I’ve now spent as long in Sevastopol, Russia as I did in Sevastopol, Ukraine”. Have you been living there for 12 months ? 6 months before the annexation and 6 months since… ? Thanks
