My second teaching motto

Article on the topic just published on the Humanising Language Teaching (hltmag) website:

Don’t do anything for students that they can do for themselves

My first teaching motto is in this article from July this year:

If it can be done at home, don’t do it in class – LINK FIXED

Attempts to adapt my personal motto to TEFL, including some good comments, here:

My personal motto

Some great (mainly tongue-in-cheek) attempts to make a motto for the whole of TEFL are in the comments section here:

A new motto for TEFL

And a nice mix of ego boosters and ego deflaters contributed to my attempt to come up with a motto for this blog:

A new motto for TEFLtastic

Any other candidates for mottos for teaching, TEFL, TEFL blogs or life in comments please.

    A+ Alex! “Don’t do anything for students that they can do for themselves” and “If it can be done at home, don’t do it in class” are a home run! Excellent job!
