Help your students practice critical thinking and/or prepare for a presentational speaking activity or assessment using this graphic organizer. The organizer can be used in all levels of second language classrooms in which students are asked to respond to or speak about a given topic.
After a given listening and/or reading activity, allow students time to plan and outline their presentation ideas using this graphic organizer. Simply having students complete the organizer is excellent practice for the skills they need for presentational speaking. If time permits, you may also invite students to practice giving their presentations in pairs or to the class.
The completed organizer may also be used as a tool for teachers to monitor student participation and synthesis of a given listening or reading selection.
