12:45 pm - Изучение английского языка. Как добиться эффекта «Wow!»

braum85
Садясь за компьютер, слушая музыку, или просто идя в магазин – любой человек сталкивается с иностранными языками. Названия магазинов, брендов, новых товаров, книг и фильмов – все чащу от нас требуют знания второго или даже третьего языка. Но подобные неудобства существуют не только на обывательском уровне. Но если для простого гражданина незнание языков дает лишь ощущение дискомфорта, то для человека, имеющего отношение к бизнесу – это незнание подобно профессиональной дисквалификации.
Ключевым процессом развития сегодняшней экономики является прогрессирующая глобализация. Бизнес в России уже давно перестал быть локальным. И уже давно не стоят вопросы типа «необходимо ли учить языки?», «Нужны ли сотрудники со знанием иностранных языков?», «Сколько сотрудников в фирме должны владеть иностранными языками?». Вопрос сегодня есть только один: «Как наиболее дешево и качественно организовать обучение персонала иностранному языку?».
Методы обучения персонала
Поговорим про изучение английского языка, который наиболее востребован на сегодняшнем рынке. Логичным следствие подобной острой востребованности является множество способов и предложений по изучению языка. Сразу отметем самостоятельное изучение, даже за корпоративный счет. Как показывает практика, если язык нужен для профессионального общения, индивидуальные занятия, даже с носителем языка, не специализирующемся на бизнес-тематике, не могут дать необходимого уровня подготовки. Не забывайте, что ваш персонал должен изучать не столько иностранный язык, сколько язык профессионального общения. То есть, фактически, заново освоить всю систему мимики, жестов, пауз и убыстрений разговора, которой они, не задумываясь, пользуются при разговоре на родном языке, но полностью теряют при некачественном изучении английского языка, даже при роскошном словарном запасе.
Сегодня для профессионалов бизнеса есть лишь одно решение: курсы различных уровней, индивидуальные занятия и занятия в группах. Существует множество программ для изучения английского языка онлайн, но и здесь не стоит забывать о необходимых вам целях: не все школы изучения языков онлайн помогут достигнуть вам своих целей.
Последний вариант, необходимо признать, наиболее оптимален, как по качеству изучения, так и по стоимости.
Школа языков
Первая задача, которая стоит перед компанией, решившей начать обучение персонала в школе английского языка – определиться с уровнем обучающихся. Для кого-то уже необходимы курсы делового английского, для кого-то английского разговорного, для кого-то занятия с носителями языка, для кого-то изучения английского языка для начинающих или вовсе с нуля. А кому-то уже необходима подготовка к экзаменам TOEFL или IELTS.
«Репетитор по английскому», «английский с преподавателем» — именно с такого поискового запроса многие начинают поиск вариантов обучения языку. Но искать надо не преподавателя, а школу изучения английского языка, которая сможет предложить вам весь спектр услуг. Признак хорошей школы, видный сразу даже человеку, далекому от проблем обучения – широкий спектр предлагаемых услуг. Он должен заключать в себя и онлайн изучение английского языка, и обучение в офисе, и углубленное изучение, и обучение руководителей, и обучение специалистов, английский с носителем и просто английский с преподавателем. Чем шире спектр предлагаемых услуг – тем лучше школа. Второй признак качественной школы английского языка – отзывы реальных бизнесменов и менеджеров, прошедших в ней обучение. Потому что мерилом качества, в конечном итоге, служит только практика.

11:34 pm - Lesson Plan Closure

thatxsunrise
What kind things do you use for your lesson plan closure.  I teach elementary school and it seems had to come up with ideas that don't involve too much writing- like exit slips.  Many of my students are very behind in Language Arts and can't read and write on their own grade level.

Are there questions or activites you like to use for Closure?

10:34 pm - One Class Period Assignments- any ideas?

thatxsunrise
I've got what I hope is sort of an unusual situation at my school.  We have a 5th Grade- ALL BOYS class with boys from ages 10 - 13 years old.  It's the only single gender class at the school and it was created because the teacher, a preacher wanted to have the chance to be a good influnce on these boys with severe behavior issues.  There are constantly fights in the classsroom- and I'm talking about fights where people are punching each other in the head and body slamming each other.  They've had quite a few fights in Art as well- but it just comes with the situation with these boys.

So, despite all of their behavior problems I'm supposed to be able to teach them Art for 40 minutes a week.  Of course I spent most of that 40 minutes trying to get them to stay in their seats and keep the volume to an acceptable level.  We have been working for about 4 weeks on Self Portraits- and I have some students who have NOTHING on their paper, some who have ripped the paper up, thrown theirs away, refused to do anything, some who have drawn things NOT related to the assignment and only a few who have actually tried to get any work done.Now we're 9 weeks into the school year and they have almost nothing to show for it.  I've done a lot of thinkng about this and how to handle this- reaching out to parents doesn't seem to help.  The parents know these kids have behavior problems and administration just wants me to get them to be productive- and that's a failing effort right now.  It's becoming hard to calucate class participation or grade anything- because they are doing so little!So, now I'm considering switching gears and instead I'm going to try doing 1 class only assignments when them (like I often do with the Pre-K's and K's) so that we have proof that they either did it or they did't- they tried or they didn't bother.  We have some proof that daily they are doing something! 

I'd love some opinions or ideas about how you think this would work.  This is my VERY first year teaching and I'm going through an alternative certification program- so I'm new to everything.

1:32 pm - the art of communication

jumitheklutz
Hello! I work at an art museum and we have a program where teachers can rent out suitcases filled with artwork, books, and other resources on a particular subject.

We're hoping to put together a suitcase about communication-related arts; cartoons/comics, zines, posters (propaganda, gig posters etc.), altered books, mail art, murals, etc.

Can anyone recommend any good books or other resources for any of these topics? Preferably something appropriate for K-12, but even stuff appropriate for just the older kids would still be helpful. Even stuff that may not be appropriate for children but would be a good resource for teachers would be helpful.

Thanks! Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions for what you as a teacher would want included if you were to rent something like this, I would love to hear those too!

12:24 pm - question about lithography

mavisol
I am translating into English (not my native language) an article about a 19th-century artist and I've come across a term which, roughly translated, is "tone lithograph" (this does not mean that this is a widely accepted English phrase - it's just my clumsy translation). Well, I've been told by one of LJ residents:))) that it means a lithograph made with two stones one of which is completely smoooth and covered with paint ("tone") or some such substance. As an example, this kind-hearted fellow posted a picture
http://community.livejournal.com/ru_illustration/26590.html?thread=37598#t37598

My question: is there a standard English phrase for such lithographs? or it's simply "color lithographs"?

Cross-post.

1:45 pm - Classroom Rules

thatxsunrise


So, to my shock- I was made an offer by the school that I interviewed with on Monday.  Everything is on a really short timeline- so school starts a week from TODAY!  I'm just running through all kinds of emotion right now and trying to think about everything that I need to get done!

I'm going to be working for an Elementary School in a VERY POOR part of South Carolina.  The Principal really pushed about how she likes ot keep things strict with the discipline because of how rough the kids can be.  I know from reading The First Days of School by Harry Wong how important it is to start our strong with this.  Because I'm starting out blank with no teaching experience I need some help! 

What kind of rules do you have for your art classroom?

4:22 am - Free Amazon Prime for students

theonlytime
Amazon is currently giving free 1 year memberships to Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping) to current students with a .edu email address: http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info I'm not sure how long they're offering this (it doesn't say on the site).

Just thought i'd give fellow students the heads up on this in case you haven't heard about it yet. This is going to save me a ton on shipping textbooks this year!

12:42 am - Interview for Art Ed position

thatxsunrise

So, the school year is about to begin and I'm still without a teaching job for the fall (I work in Marketing and I'm trying to go through an Alternative Certification program).  Suddenly on Thursday I got a call from a school in a more rural area- wanting to interview me on Monday!  I'm working on the normal stuff like thinking about interview questions- Please wish me luck!  The interview is on the 9th and classes start the 19th, so if I get it, things would happen very quickly!


Did you bring any kind of portfolio with you to interviews?  What did you include in it? 

I made one before  my last interview and it included my resume, teaching philosophy, samples of my art work- ceramics, photography, jewelry, and marketing- but it feels like I should add more.  I was thinking of adding sample lesson plans.  Any other ideas?



Also, this is kind of a thinking ahead question- but what do you wear to teach in?  I know in some of the books I've read they talk about wearing their "power suit" for teaching normal subject- but for Art, especially with younger kids- that's very hard!  What kind of things do you end up wearing ?

1:19 pm - Viewfinders

staminiarose
Hi all,

I was wondering, do you make your students make their own viewfinders when you want to teach them perspective? Additionally, how do you go about doing that? I find that students from age 8 to 18 often have trouble drawing a straight line with a ruler and measuring anything that is not 1 inch in length. Is their a foolproof way to do this without wasting too many materials?

current mood: curious

3:46 pm - Books

thatxsunrise

You guys are always full of really helpful information- so I thought I'd ask here!

I've been doing the testing to get into an Alternative Teacher Certification program in my state (SC) and I've finally finished all of that!  Including passing the Art Making and Art Content Knowledge Praxis II tests.  Now I'm finishing my application, waiting on paperwork and soon I'll be starting to apply for jobs.

Can you offer me any ideas about books for Teaching Art or Classroom Management that have been helpful for you?

Thank you!

1:49 am - behavior management strategies?

marienkafer17
Hello All,

This is kind of embarrassing.
I'm a third year art teacher. I've been really frustrated in last 3 weeks because I'm noticing the kids don't seem to respect me or the materials. I things they work towards as a class for good behavior and I follow through with consequences for the more serious offenses (calls home, interem, grade drop and office). But i've noticed when there are lots of materials out its distracting to me and I'm sure they are getting away with stuff. I also feel like I haven't developed that eyes in the back of your head yet because I'll get really into to helping a student and find others playing around or getting into trouble. Individually I'll give a student 2-3 warnings and then remove them from the group (sitting out), they get a second chance and if they can't handle it I call home. As for the group I've even stopped art completely for some classes. I'm probably trying waaay to many strategies but its driving me crazy and clearly what I'm doing is ineffective if they can't be bothered to listen.

What is working for you? I need to come up with some kind of plan for the rest of the year.

current mood: drained

7:43 pm - art_classes

stoopid_silly
Hey guys, I just thought some of you might be interested in the new community I made, art_classes. It's basically a place where people can post art "assignments" or prompts to get your creative juices stirring. You can also post your finished works for a "critique." Basically a virtual art class!

Please remember that our community is meant to share information about art education and the professional interests of art educators. It IS okay to post your work if it relates to furthering your career as an art educator (for example, getting feedback on your slides to apply for grad school, your own personal example that you made for students, or slides for a presentation you will make at an art education conference). However, it is not okay to promote your personal work or personal website. There are tons of places on Livejournal created just for that reason. I realize we ARE artists in our own right, but we don't mix our personal life and career with our school life and career at work, so let's not do it here.

THANKS!
