Unit 17: Practice activities and tasks for language and skills development.

18 May

HELLO THERE!

While studying this course we learned that there are more than one way to teach through different activities and tasks, such as:

  • new vocabulary
  • functional structures
  • grammatical structures
  • subskills
But, in this unit we focused on three different types of activities:
  1. Controlled activities
  2. Free activities
  3. Freer activities
Is there any difference between the two last ones? you will look for the answer in the Hot potatoes‘ exercise.
However, we should know that is not always possible try to categorize each activity into only one among the three ones below.
Keep on mind that: “Using several kinds of activities in our lessons adds variety. This helps to keep lessons more interesting and motivating(TKT tips).
Now, just review some of the vocabulary from the Unit 17.
YOU WILL FIND THE NEXT VOCABULARY ON THE FOLLOW EXERCISE:
Freer activities Controlled activities Filler
Rank ordering Drills Jigsaw listening/reading
Free activities Open-ended (tasks, questions) Freer, free, less controlled practice

PRACTICE ACTIVITIES AND TASKS…
