A text, extensive vocabulary, L1 and collaborative learning

Today’s post will be exclusively in pictures, and will reflect a lot of my views on classroom learning (this time with no technology involved with the exception of the video projector for the step-by-step instructions).

The teacher is silent but in full control of all activity in the classroom, and the student activity will take all 60-75 minutes. This can be done with any text on any subject whatsoever, and at any level.

Student skills used: reading; pronouncing; spellingwriting; listening; new, unfamiliar vocabulary learning
