The problem of ‘difficult’ students conceals opportunities for learning. In this workshop, we tackle the difficulties on many levels, all helping to build self-esteem. The approach I demonstrate here involves: a) using learner input; b) cooperative activities; c) using errors as steps in learning; d) teaching not testing; e) discipline-friendly techniques; and f) building rapport.
