Blog about best teaching practice- dgafprofesorado

The Department for Education has launched in recent months a blog welcoming contributions from teachers sharing teaching experiences with the community at large. You can visit it at
We encourage you to write a post for that blog, summarising any experience or classroom activity you think is worth sharing and that might be useful or inspirational to other teachers. Don’t be humble, you all do great things with your students, I’m sure. It might be related to bilingual education, English language teaching, or not.

Besides, if you have implemented any teaching practice related to something that has come up in our CARLEE lessons or courses, it would be great to write about it, to let other people know that you’re putting our suggestions into practice, and to what effect.

If you write something, you can email it to me (
