Sometimes teaching straight from the textbook isn’t enough for your students. Throughout the lesson, they still might not understand what they’re supposed to do for a particular grammar point, or in what cases to use it, or why it matters. It’s perfectly natural since different students have different learning styles. It helps for teachers to revisit such grammar points from an alternate perspective, giving their students a better chance of understanding the material (and a better chance of remembering it later). But as a teacher, you’re pretty busy, and you may not have time to develop a new method before your next lesson.
Good news: we’ve got you covered! Insights has already developed methods for occasions just like these, and we’re here to share those methods with you. Now you can feel more confident in the material, present those topics in a new way, and watch your students find those ‘aha’ moments.
No! All of Insights to English’s resources exist to supplement your curriculum. If you’ve been teaching out of a book, continue doing that. When you reach a topic that could use a different approach because your current materials simply aren’t connecting for some of your students for whatever reason, that’s when you turn to Insights.
While most of our videos were made in such a way that students could watch them, that’s not the best way for them to learn. We believe students learn best through teacher interactions, which is why we want to support you, not replace you. Here are some reasons teaching our methods in your own way is better than simply playing our videos for your students.
Our videos are just the beginning! We have many more resources for teachers, some to deepen your own understanding of language, and others to help you practically in the classroom. Most of these are available exclusively for our Insiders.
Teach how to create sentence structures with just 3 or 4 steps, as with Passive Voice, Relative Clauses, Reported Speech, Wishes & Regrets, and more.
Help students avoid common mistakes with rules-of-thumb like the One Blue Word rule, the One Red ‘S’ rule, sequencing for the Past Perfect tense, and more.
Break down complicated lists into simple patterns as with Conditionals, Verb Patterns, the Present Perfect tense, and Subject & Object Questions.
