25+ years of teaching high school and adult education. Department Chair at several high schools. Also worked in advertising and marketing for corporate America which has given me a unique teaching style.
Project based lessons which often incorporate research and sometimes include a creative element. Assessment can be done on a personal completion of assignments or by pairs or small groups. Lessons focus on the ability of the advanced student to research, collaborate, and express themselves in the target language at an advanced level and mostly about current topics.
