Throwing Back Tokens
Looking back on what happens in my classroom, I try to answer the questions: what happened? what worked? what didn’t work? and what will I do next time? I use these questions as a way to bring light to moments that would otherwise go unexamined. Having learned the value of reflective practice at The SIT Graduate Institute, I know how golden these moments are for professional and self development. The title of this blog is play on the term reflective teaching. According to the dictionary definition, the word teach is historically related to the word token. As for reflection, a quick thesaurus search shows the synonym throwing back. This is where Throwing Back Tokens was born. This blog is for anyone who shares a passion for teaching second or foreign languages, or simply for teaching in general. This is also a blog for anyone interested in learning more about teaching in a Korean context. If you aren’t interested in teaching, please enjoy the videos and pictures.
