"REPETITOR MultiMedia"

for the English Language Office (ELO) of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow

The authors would like to thank first and foremost the 18 teachers who opened their classroom doors to a camera crew so that this project could be realized. Without their trust in the idea of sharing new ideas with colleagues around the country and globe, this project would not be possible.

Secondly, we would like to thank the students in each class for tolerating the “third eye” of the camera and for allowing it to capture not only teachers, but also learners. A teacher without students is not a classroom.

Thank you, University of Oregon for the excellent training material, “Shaping the Way We Teach English,” upon which this project is based.

Thanks to Anatoly Zhislin and his crew at ‘REPETITOR MultiMedia’ – Ilya Simanovsky, Dmitry Afanasjev and Victor Bindarev – for being a discrete “third eye” in the classroom in Moscow and for creating high quality clips of the teachers and students. The U.S. Embassy’s English Language Office has worked with Anatoly on a number of projects, all of which have resulted in a higher than expected quality due to his keen eye and unwavering dedication to the work at hand.

Thanks to Elena Lubnina and Natalia Fomenko for spending many hours identifying eligible teachers, observing their classroom practice and making suggestions on who to film.
