Workshop goal:

- Think about VT lesson structures as a teacher


One prepped VT that students comment in

vs.

Student-created VTs





 

15 mins

Activity 1: Commenting on a series of images

1)  show FRIT example of Rousseau paintings

- have instructors choose 1 painting, comment on the painting, then look for another painting that already has a comment and respond to the comments.


2)  show ESL210 example of  “What Can You Use This For?” Lesson on “enough” vs “too”.

- have teachers add to the VoiceThread and use the pen feature

** Discussion : How would you change this activity to make it more communicative?



-3) The Simpsons : In the picture of the "Group" that you've been assigned to, become one of the family members and record what he/she/it would like to watch on the TV. Then, after reading what everyone else has decided, come to a consensus as to what the family would watch for the night.

Activity 4: Dialogue

1) showcase Beth’s German “conversation”

- have teachers respond? Probably only have time to show it...

- not sure if I want to do this because the students’ responses aren’t very organized…


2) showcase: pronunciation exercise

Discussion Questions:

- - how Could you use this in your specific courses?


- What are the Pro’s and Con’s?

Brainstorm ideas:

  • What did you do over the summer?
  • Some students (Chinese) are more comfortable speaking rather than writing.
  • Students introduce their tablemates (pods of 4) and tables can visit the other table's presentations.
