In Praise of .... the humble timeline
Simple things are often the best. Timelines were one of the
first things I learnt on my initial teacher-training course and they are still
one of my favourite tools to use in the language classroom. Timelines are
usually seen as ways to teach grammar and good timeline can say more than 1000
words. It helps to create meaning is a student’s mind and can be used either as
a visual aid to an explanation or as a way of helping students to work things
out for themselves, (guided discovery). But enough of me writing about them
here are two examples of how to use timelines in the classroom.
