(Almost) Infinite ELT Ideas was an idea originally conceived by Sandy Millin, and shared on her blog of the same name. In her words…
I will post a prompt for you to exercise your teaching muscles by making suggestions on how you could use it in class. All ideas are welcome – there are no wrong answers! Together we’ll build up a bank of inspiration for you to turn to whenever you’re stuck.
I always loved this idea, so I’ve decided to steal it for my own blog (with Sandy’s permission, of course!)
For this month’s idea, I present… yes/no cards!
These cards will be familiar to anyone who has ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse. If you are still hungry, you leave the green side up and they will keep bringing you food. If you are full or need a rest, the red side up will mean that the waiting staff will give you a break.
So how would use these yes/no cards with your students? Leave a comment below with your suggestion and in a few days, I’ll add a suggestion of my own.
