The Reverse Lesson (40)

Long, long ago on the second day of my Diploma TEFLA course (as it was then) I was tasked with the challenge of performing what was in effect a reverse lesson. It was intended to shake me from my comfort zone, and to see what I was made of. It did. Jelly.

To say it went badly would be an understatement, but there was something I liked about the whole thing. I asked the tutor if I could have another shot. He was visibly taken aback by the very idea, and advised that I move onto something else.

Nevertheless I later incorporated the Reverse Lesson into my regular teaching as an occasional event, and every so often, to this day, I still employ this method.
