Hyde Park 4 students take a soap box in the corner corner and speak on the subject, ideally using vocabulary words from the list. Audience interacts but may move on to a new corner. When speaker tires, audience member takes the soap box. Reporters take notes on essential points.
Key Vocabulary: Post Reading Code switching (changing to L1) Reiteration (switching to L1 to repeat an idea said in L2) Equivalence (finding a word in L1) Floor holding (continuing an idea in one’s own language) Meta-language (the language used to talk about learning) ‘Practice makes perfect’ Avoiding L2
Prompts and Questions Students will more successfully acquire English in an “English Only” classroom than in a classroom where Turkish is allowed. Students should not lose points for speaking Turkish in class. Turkish and foreign teachers should not speak Turkish in class. It is said that students at RC used to speak English to one another in the hallways, bathrooms and at lunch. Why don’t they do this anymore? Should we be worried? Translation is a useful skill for our students to learn. It is natural for our beginning students to go through a silent period and so we should not be worried if they don’t speak for the first three months in class.
There are times where it should be English only. WHEN? If it’s in L1, it might shut down learning at times. Simple requests, routines should be in English. Switching ok when discussing concepts (?) English was used often because it started in orta. Allowing L1 honors who they are, where they’re from. IDENTITY STRUCTURED ENGLISH SPEAKING:
The Last Word S1: Asks a question OR says “I think/I wonder/I can’t believe/I like/I’m bothered by” S2: MUST respond by elaborating on S1’s comment, asking a question and/or by playing Devil’s Advocate (showing an opposite idea) S3: May respond to S2 or S1 OR ask a new question S4: Must respond to S2, S2 or S3 using the tactics before THEN RETURN to S1, who gets the LAST WORD
Fishbowl 9 students sit in a circle and discuss the subject. Remaining students observe the discussion and monitor the contributions of at least two students using the chart (see handout). Roles: The Optimist/Pessimist, the Devil’s Advocate, The Counselor, The Socrat,
