The Human in the Uniform: Rola Jaber at TEDxAmmanTeachers

The Technique or approach adopted when it comes to teaching ESL students in a community like ours. Learning English in our society is not like learning any other subject; it is a matter of self-image, confidence, university choices, and career opportunities. Therefore, I believe that when it comes to dealing with students who are trying to learn English; especially at a critical time of their lives, we should not look at them as students learning math, science, or history. We should focus on the "human in the uniform" and work our best to understand that "human" before we even start teaching him/her English. I see that applying the "Affective-Humanistic Approach," where the class atmosphere is more important than the materials or methods, where the teacher's role can be a counselor as well as a teacher, and where believing that learning a new language is a self-realization experience, is one of the great approaches to get the best out of the students. About TEDx?In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
