#hiddengems part 2

I’m doing this #hiddengems homework – digging for gold in the archives of teacher blogs – in parts. Here are two more:

Karenne Sylvester wrote about disappointment as a topic for an EFL lesson in “Life is no bed of roses“, building around student input. An excellent business English lesson for managers. I’d update the intro using Luis van Gaal bringing home the visibly dejected Bayern München after Saturday’s loss against Inter Milan, and being overwhelmed by the fans’ showering them with love, which the team hadn’t been expecting.

Shelly Terrell was writing about Alfie Kohn and competition vs. cooperation when we met online. The post we met over contains great tips on cooperative games. Very inspiring.
