SCVC Demonstration Class

in 2016 I recorded a demonstration class and turned that into a series of videos displaying basic concepts used in SCVC, featuring Structure control, Dynamic seating, Demonstrate-Do, One Idea – One Breath, and many others.

Fukuoka SDC Keynote 2020

On December 10, 2020 I was privileged to give the Keynote presentation for the Fukuoka Skills Development Conference. The Conference is held every year to help the Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) and their partner Japanese Teachers of English (JTEs) hone their classroom methods.

JALT 2020 Conference Presentation

At the JALT 2020 National Conference, I presented SCVC alongside Kent Jones (Ritsumeikan APU) and Steve Payton (Fukuoka University). Kent provided some broad theroretical foundations that support SCVC, and Steve reported on his success in the classroom and the overwhelmingly positive response he got from his students.

OTJ 2020 Discussion Seminar

Following the OTJ Summer Sessions that were held a the end of August 2020, a number of OTJ members joined me as I offered to tutor a couple of other teachers who wanted more information on how I implement SCVC in my classrooms.

Verbal Classrooms: Faster, Smoother, More

The presentation I gave at Simon Moran’s SessionELL 2021.I tried to do this presentation with the assumption that most in the audience had already seen one of my prior basic presentations, so I could talk about more advanced methods.

It was a little confused at moments as I discovered that I had inadvertently forgotten to remove certain slides that I no longer needed.

Slidesets

Basic SCVC Blackboards

During the ERT / RATT* conditions that instructors found themselves in during the pandemic, I found myself needing to switch from my normal chalkboard method to using presentation software such as Keynote. While I fully intend to return to using my chalkboard once we are firmly back in the classroom, These chalkboards are useful for showing other instructors the examples and progressions of the Structure Control exercises that I use.

Fukuoka SDC 2020

My slides from the Fukuoka Skills Development Conference 2020; a yearly event by the Fukuoka Prefectural Board of Education for the Assistant language Teachers (ALTs) and their partner Japanese Teachers of English (JTEs). I was asked to do the Keynote Presentation for the 2020 Conference.

This slideset is basically the same one I used for the JALT 2020 Conference. If I can get Steve and Kent’s permission I will share their slides as well.

Faster, Smoother, More

My slides from SessionsELL 2021. There were other topics I spoke about, such as “No Questions” or “2-minute Speeches” that aren’t that well covered in these slides. As always feel free to contact me if there is anything you want to discuss.
