€ŚWHEN TEACHING FAILS€¦ TRY LEARNING€ť THE KING€™S JOURNEY LEARN ENGLISH INTERACTIVE BOARD : ELT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The Challenge: “How can we help our teachers to motivate and engage students to learn and understand more about our beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand from the Three Volumes Series written in English? Asked Dr. Danai Chanchaochai, the author Volume One: From Prince to King - The Early Years Volume Two: Strength of the Land - The New Kingship Volume Three: By the Light of Your Wisdom - A Wise and Righteous King Addressing the challenge: Most well written books have a pattern of thinking or mental model created by the author including The Three Volumes Series, in order to convey his/her understanding or mental model to the students could be a major challenge when we start to teach the content directly from the books. In fact, the learners need a vehicle, opportunity and supports to process the right amount of informations in order to create their own understanding or new knowledge. More importantly, the role of the teachers will become a facilitator and a learning coach with a new characteristic of the classroom settings and styles.
