Tech-Centered Dialogues for ELL Students includes 5 Dialogues (2 present tense, 2 past tense & 1 future tense); Q & As for comprehension and discussion; definition matches; a present/past tense verb match; and writing samples. These dialogues are recommended for levels two and up. There is a range of content questions which allows for a broader span of abilities. These dialogues also introduce folks to the basics of computer terminology, enabling them to shop for products of their own.
Each dialogue contains three characters, allowing for small group communication and collaboration. Dialogue 5 (Future Technology) is sure to spark some stimulating and controversial conversation.
Students receive practice on giving preferences and opinions as they look for the pros and cons of different devices. They may also do their own research into the components and capabilities of devices.
