Introduction to teaching mathematics in English.

About This Course

• This is a time of change in Education. • Thai math teachers must teach in English. • All teachers must plan lessons effectively. • Central to our approach are sound practices in education. • The most important of these is the “concept”. • A concept is a group of ideas. • These ideas are sequenced in the best possible way. • Concepts are made up of language, diagrams and symbols. • Diagrams and symbols are universal language taught everywhere. • We will use technology to help you. • The pedagogy of enquiry will help us create simple English sentences. • Organizing these sentences will help you plan in English. • Other forms of English such as questions will be used. • Writing lesson plans in English will be made easier. • We know how it should be done for mathematics education.
