What? When? How? Why? Teaching students to ask questions. Presentation at The Language Show on 14 November 2021
Rachel Hawkes, NCELP Co-Director, presented 'What? When? How? Why? Teaching students to ask questions' at The Language Show on 14 November
The ability to understand and ask questions is fundamental to meaningful interaction. In a time-limited classroom language learning context, what is the most effective way to teach questions to our students, so that they can initiate and respond without a written script, and so that they are making clear progress towards asking what they want to ask? How does the ability to ask questions ‘off the top of your head’ relate to learner motivation? This session shares resources for developing the core knowledge needed for independent spoken interaction over the three years of KS3.
