CELT-S The past, The present
Roger Powers – Muhammad Alsayed
“Over a thousand years ago, there was always a Socratic dialogue in Alazhar between the scholar and his students because they were always motivated. The sole Ambition of every learner was to be an exact copy of his tutor which was the type of higher education or as we call it now ELTS English Language Teaching for Secondary students. Nowadays the explosion of knowledge and the progress in instructional technology have shifted the emphasis away from the tutor and the text as the only sources of information.” Roger powers
The stake is quite higher nowadays as it takes a magician rather than a scholar to engage his/her students.It takes a teacher who’s able to self reflect and think of the students as flowers to take good care of and water but as wild as lions that need to be tamed from now and then. Students are no longer intrinsically motivated so the challenge is to dig deep and find the roots of their intrinsic rather than extrinsic motivation and ignite their passion. In this series, I’ll be taking you into journeys from books and teaching experience from teachers from different countries under the highlights of the CELTS.
