Creative Learner Centred Teaching

Just a few weeks ago, I got an e-mail from Russia. The author was a teacher trainer from Yarslavl, Russia who also is a project coordinator for an organization called Creative Learner Centred Teaching. She said:

" I am really happy that I got your book The Creative Classroom: teaching languages outside the box just before the training for teachers of English of our region (start on August,20). We (team of trainers) are greatly inspired with your ideas on using creativity training activities. We are designing training materials at the moment and plan to try many activities from The Creative Classroom with our participants. "

It's great to hear from one of my readers. She sent me a report on one of her teacher training workshops, along with some copies of handouts. It sounds like they had an incredible experience . They wrote poetry, did some mind mapping, discussed creative and critical thinking, and they even played something called newspaper bingo (I'd love to know what that is!). I wish I could have been there.

If you are interested in learning more about Creative Learner Centred Teaching, I refer you to the CLCT website:
