About Nuthouse – By Scott Crowe
My dream is to get children so involved with an imaginary world that they forget they are speaking English and communicate naturally.I have created stories that make children think and want to solve the characters problems and to do that they use the English that they know. I love when children try to use whatever language they have to communicate with me and I have kept that in mind with every activity in this curriculum.
”My dream is to also help solve real problems that teachers have in exciting and creative ways. At Nuthouse, we are striving to be the top producer of mixed-level class solutions.”
Often it is necessary for small schools to put all kindergarten children in the same classes for scheduling purposes. This creates challenges for the instructor to manage different levels and ages while still trying to keep all kids improving steadily and truly enjoying the classes. By using the Emotional Positioning techniques and ‘level roles’ in the classroom, experienced children can improve more than was possible before. Lower level children can also enjoy the same classes using the language they have while watching and learning from the experienced children in the same way that a child in an English immersion program would.
Nuthouse has encorporated popular teaching methods such as TPR, songs, chants, student centered flashcard games and communication oriented ‘quick and easy’ crafts into the curriculum so that all teachers can enjoy the flexibility this curriculum has to offer. There are many wonderful textbooks available for level based schools. Of course, Nuthouse products can be level oriented.
