Teaching ideas for Volunteers

NEW IDEA 2020

I am writing a series of books related to issues contemporary to the year 4576. The isues include global warming, the number of humans on Earth, spreading humans through the galaxy by sending robo-spaceships to planets around other suns, living and working on the Moon and in Space City, mining on Mars and asteroids.

The series is called

MAXWELL EMPIRE BOOK 1

MAXWELL EMPIRE BOOK 2

MAXWELL EMPIRE BOOK 3

ETC

AND ALSO HAS A COMPANION SET WHERE THE BOOKS HAVE BEEN SCRIPTED, HENCE YOU HAVE

MAXWELL EMPIRE SCRIPTED BOOK 1

MAXWELL EMPIRE SCRIPTED BOOK 2

MAXWELL EMPIRE SCRIPTED BOOK 3

ETC

What this scripted means is shown here. This makes these books useful for teaching English as you get 20 chapters with most of them being suitable for most students to read as plays.

JIMMY

I love that Earth view, Ben. The Earth looks so beautiful.

BEN

Yes, Jimmy. That is one of the big attractions of a Moon walk on the surface. Seeing home.

JIMMY

There you are, Ben. One small footprint for a man, or near man, one small leap for Albury humans.

BEN

Yes, Jimmy. The first Albury human to put their foot on that particular piece of the Moon.

JIMMY

Well, Ben, I suppose going for the walk after all the competitions is a good idea just in case one of us falls over or whatever else people do to muck up a walk.

END OF NEW INFORMATION

 

Volunteer in Thailand2 400

Included on a flash drive are help and exercises I have prepared to complement the assistance you will be receiving to effectively assist the learners. These are only the exercises included in the programs you will be given and amount to about half of all the exercises. If you need more they will be given to you but that is highly unlikely.

Help for lesson planning

Your hour lesson should be broken up into quarters or something similar, with a different activity each quarter, to maintain interest because 60 minutes of your voice will send them to sleep.

In the folder on the flash drive Planning_of_lessons you have folders for each level, P3 to M3. The spreadsheet shows the time spent on each exercise used during the lesson that day. You will see that the totals are the number of minutes for the lesson, and that a total of four or five exercises are used each lesson. You can see the spreadsheet for M3 on the website.

Download the spreadsheet for the M3 Program.

 

How to Use the Exercises for Volunteers

The folder How_to_use_exercises on the flash drive contains documents each of which gives a description of how to use one type of exercise.

So that you can see them beforehand these have been amalgamated into the file All_how_to_use_exercises2 and can be downloaded read.
