Leo, you're one of the posters whose PowerPoints I actually open and look at just for the heck of it, not even knowing if I'll ever have a chance to use them with any of my current students or not. I enjoy going through them. Your DDD jobs was a smash with my after-school students though. I was able to fit about half of it into half an after-school class the other day (there's supplementary EBS material I'm required to administer), and they delight in being able to count to a trillion (they didn't want to stop at a billion) and sound out seemingly mind-boggling large numbers in seconds. I know my co's are going to be blown away if and when they ever see a demonstration of it.

Keep up the good work. Mad props to you, my friend! Heck, I never even get tired of reading the Dear fellow teacher notice at the beginning of your slideshows, even though I've already read it many times. I agree with your philosophy 1000% as it applies to public schools. Are your co teachers supportive? Unfortunately I have co's who are overburdened just with teaching the textbook to mostly very low-level students, and so in merely assisting them with it I feel my role as foreign assistant teacher is one I'd label relegated, limited, and dismissable, and at times unfortunately it complements my laziness all too well. Anyway, enough of my life story. I'd like to give you a *thumbs up* smiley but I don't see one here, so again Good. Job. me likey!

One more (little) thing: it's Steve Jobs's Stanford Graduation Speech.  ;)

Thanks for the uplifting feedback patch! If they can count to a trillion, they can probably count higher than your co-teachers! I briefly mentioned trillion, quadrillion, etc. to my more advanced classes as well, but I didn't go as far as teaching it. It would've made the race games a lot more fun though!

My co-teachers are very supportive. They specifically requested I give cultural lessons, as they see curriculum based lessons to be a waste of a foreign teacher's potential contribution. I prefer it this way even though I spend significant amount of time on my lessons as a result (researching, planning & designing).

A few of my lessons work really well with low level students, but definitely not this one. It might be worth a shot to try them out during your regular classes post-exam or something.

Thanks for the feedback!

I have corrected the error.

Leo this is a great lesson, and I really appreciate that you shared it with everyone.

I teach a 2hr class once a week for korean english teachers and I used this lesson last week, albeit heavily modified.  What I did was print about 6 of the photos from the website that featured them and then printed out reading material from Simple English Wikipedia to provide background and contextual information for each of the photos.

In class i put each picture on the board, one at a time, and had the teachers brainstorm words and ideas about each pic.  Next, using the Earthrise photo, i gave a 5min presentation on when the picture was taken; who was involved in the photo; what is the historical context of the photo; how has the photo changed the world we live in (ie, why is it significant); how does this photo makes me, personally, feel; and how would the world be different if this event never happened?

Working in pairs the teachers were then asked to pick a photo from the selection i had printed out, along with the accompanying background info, and prepare 5min presentations using the aforementioned questions as guidelines.

In went over really well and it forced them to synthesize information in a fairly short period of time, on topics that we hadn't previously discussed.

So thanks again Leo for your helpful and always stellar lesson ideas!

jmahab,

Thanks for the comprehensive update! Would it be possible to upload those files so that others might be able to benefit from them? It sounds like your version would be more applicable to advanced students (after all, mine was originally intended to be for middle school students) and may prove to be more useful in this board than my version.

This is an amazing lesson with an excellent philosophy. I've used a few of those pictures in advanced classes before, but this is a far superior collection! Unfortunately, I am currently teaching in Saudi Arabia and practically none of these pictures are permissible, but I will hold on to it for the future. Thanks very much!
