Throwing Back Tokens is play on the term reflective teaching. According to the dictionary definition, the word teach is historically related to the word token. As for reflection, a quick thesaurus search shows the synonym throwing back. This is how Throwing Back Tokens was born.
When I started this blog in 2009, this was the main topic I was writing about: my life as a teacher. As the years pass, I feel more drawn to write about the magic and mysteries of life. This may be found at the front of the class; within my favourite podcast; on the streets of South Korea; among the rainforests of Costa Rica; or in the hammock in my backyard. I’m looking forward to throwing back a different kind of token.
Some of these “tokens”, past and present, may include:
- Compassion and Self-compassion
- Nonviolent Communication
- Reflective Practice
- Life in Korea
- Teacher training
- English language teaching
Thank you for joining me on this new journey.
