So this lesson on Social Media worked surprisingly well in my class of 13 year-old teenagers, some of whom do not usually like participating actively in English conversation.
- so to start with, I divided the class into groups of 4-5 students and gave each group a pack of excellent Nomination-Cards by Tekhnologic, which have the function of obliging every member of the group to speak when called upon at random by the card that was picked. This made sure that even the shy and reticent had to participate and it really worked.
- I then gave them a series of questions on social media to discuss which went down well since they enjoyed the topic.
- Finally we watched a film simulating social media for which I had created questions which stop during the film and have to be answered for the film to continue.
The students participated actively and it was an overall successful lesson. Try it out for yourselves!
I hope you find this useful.
