Demand High Teaching

Jim Scrivener on “Demand High Teaching” at International House Director of Studies Conference 2013

Demand High asks if common practices in the ELT classroom have become rituals, more interested in “covering” materials and “doing” activities than asking questions that push students to new levels of understanding. Introduced at last year’s IATEFL conference by ELT superstars Jim Scrivener and Adrian Underhill, the idea has since momentum in the ELT community. Their blog includes many resources, presentations and teacher self-observation activities.

Here is a short interview with Jim Scrivener at the 2013 IATEFL Conference.
