Welcome to the Barton website, designed by one of my former students, Tom Cahalan. This is a sign of either (a) his high esteem for me as a teacher or (b) the fact that I originally promised him £50 if he did a good job. You be the judge.
With around 10,000 hits a month, the site contains a mixture of free English resources for students and teachers, based on materials I’ve developed in my own teaching, or for conferences and presentations, or through my publishing work and freelance writing.
The website contains no advertising or endorsements, which is a sign of my long-standing control-freakery: I don’t want ads for books or writing schools or off-the-shelf essays popping up everywhere. Instead this is just an old-fangled, text-heavy collection of links and resources intended to amuse, inform and occasionally provoke.
My separate “Pick ‘n’ Mix” site contains links to articles and audio that strike me as interesting. You can also follow me on Twitter (@RealGeoffBarton), though this may well be a sign that you really do have too much time on your hands.
This site was developed as a straightforward resource for teachers, students and even the occasional bewildered collector of those 6-second songs called radio jingles. Welcome to you all.
