Creativity involves the creation of new ideas or new relations between ideas that already coexist in our brains.
Creativity fosters critical thinking. We are living tough times, where we need to learn how to think by ourselves. Schools should give the students to develop their creativity; we no longer live in that old school where the transmission of content from teacher to student was the only way. Now, we need to teach our students to think! They need to think outside the box!
TeachEslToday is bringing you the first delivery on: EXERCISES TO DEVELOP CREATIVITY.
On them, you will find very useful exercises to help your students develop their creativity.
This is just the first delivery, more will be coming soon!

It is strange to see how kids thathave been raised under the same circunstaces, show different levels in their academic perfomance.
Why is that? Motivation is the key word. Teachers are already working on that but….are the schools doing the same?
What do you think?

Do you really know the difference between evaluating and assessing?
They are two different contents, and I have seen teachers using them randomly. But they are not in fact quite the same. And it is important to know the difference in order to use them appropriatelly.
Let’s see the difference:
Assessment: In this, you will be required to determine how well your students are learning, gauge their performance, and measure the appropriateness of the content and the effectiveness of the methods and techniques utilized in your classroom.
Evaluation is intrinsically more complex than writing a test, giving it to a group of students, scoring it, and handing it back with some sort of letter grade. Indeed, it involves a combination of procedures and designs that not only gauge students’ work but also help them grow in the process.
NOT CLEAR ENOUGH?? Try this ↓
When you assess your individual students, you gather information about their level of performance or achievement. Evaluation is comparing a student’s achievement with other students or with a set of standards.

Many of you will probably know, but for those who don’t here it goes:
If you want to help your students in the reading skill and you want to engage them in the reading process, this web will give you tips and advice to do it.
Besides, It has very interesting and practical how-to videos where they explain how they practise what they preach.
