In this webinar, participants will engage in and be able to use 5 new warm-up activities and grouping strategies that can both introduce lesson content and review important aspects of effective communication. We will also demonstrate 3 strategic speaking activities students can do once they have been grouped, and efficient ways for teachers to assess and give feedback to students on their speaking skills, which can be quite challenging in large classes.
Handouts and resources will be provided for all strategies and activities we discuss!
