The teacher becomes the scribe and writes the story on the board, and the students can see their experiences taking shape in writing.This activity can be extended to include a visual component.
Reading aloud is a popular reading task in English language classrooms.
The task typically targets skills associated with reading, such as fluency, word recognition, and pronunciation.
Rather than have learners share their individual experiences, you could ask the class to recount an experience you shared as a group.
For example, if the class went on a field trip recently, ask the class to recount the field trip together.
For example, an academic reading curriculum might have the following objective: “Learners will analyze a variety of academic writing samples in an effort to determine the components, organization, and structure of academic writing texts.” Although English language teachers can think of any number of ways to teach and support reading as a skill, they may find it more difficult to achieve the first part of this objective—how to teach learners to analyze.
Critical thinking involves reflection and the analysis of ideas.
Some of the activities and tasks may seem familiar as they are based on long-established language teaching techniques. Learners must understand, examine, analyze, evaluate, and create while using English to complete a task or activity.
The activities are designed to support authentic language use while also encouraging critical thinking. The result is a language skills task or activity that promotes critical thinking skills.
On the other hand, if a student spells some words incorrectly, do not correct them.
Encourage learners to use the English they know and are comfortable using in their stories. After students have written their stories, give everyone a chance to share what they have written.
