To see previous teaching tasters, please see our archives.
Should you wish to submit a teaching taster, please follow the guidelines below (not following these guidelines is a clear reason for refusal).
- must promote plurilingualism (the activities lasso in on the plurilingualism of the classroom) or be general enough that they can be used for different languages.
- must be useful for different instructional levels or ages, or a transfer is mentioned.
- include materials that teachers can use “as is” or with simple adaptations.
- are “timely” (reflecting movements, issues and ideas in contemporary society) or “timeless” (e.g. games and ideas that can be used in multiple contexts).
- contain no more than 1 page (ca. 4,000 characters) of descriptive text (procedures and justifications, no theoretical foundations);
- contain no more than 4 pages of teacher-friendly, ready-to-use instructional materials for the classroom;
- contain no more than three references.
