Philosophical meanderings and interesting books plus student resources
Theory of everything
A new kind of business
Finally, here's my MSN space which includes pictures (it might load rather slowly)
In 2007 I expanded the 'Theory of Everything' pages, offering more of my thoughts on science and economics.
I made some new piano recordings but didn't put them online! So maybe in 2008 they will go up... EBC has been re-thought - I changed my mind about something quite significant
Books in my in-tray, in progress or recently finished include:
Michael Lewis 'The Lexical Approach'
Here's a useful link for language teachers : The lexical approach for teaching
This treatise seems to me to make a whole lot of sense ! I came across this book in Borders whilst studying for my CELTA certificate in Cambridge and devoured it rapidly then. On the course we were taught the PPP - present practice produce paradigm for language teaching. Michael Lewis claims this has been obsoleted by his OHE observe hypothesise experiment paradigm.
The book is a philosophical treasure-trove, not just for English language teachers, but anyone interested in language and philosophy and how the two are interrelated.
