Speaking and listening activities are important tools for learning, not just for presentations. Studies show that oral skills are key to literacy and learning. Talk helps us not only to communicate our learning, but also to explore it: to reflect, to probe, to figure things out. The activities in this package are designed to provide your students with plenty of opportunity to learn how to speak and listen for authentic learning.
In this package you will find:
-Ideas to help you and your students create an environment that allows for good discussion, including posters that you can use in your classroom
-Activities that will allow students to use speaking and listening as a tool for learning
-Activities to build student listening skills and speaking confidence
-Speaking and listening activities to allow them to practice these skills
-Information on how to give an effective presentation
-Rubrics and checklists for assessment and reflection (for both students and teacher)
-Forms that allow you to easily track student participation during class discussions
