  • 9. From my classroom...
    I really enjoyed reading about your best friend and I want to know more!
    Her favourite animal is a rabbit – has she got a pet rabbit?
    She has got 1 or 2 fish – goldfish? Has she got an aquarium?
    She goes to Charles de Gaulle – is she French? Or can she speak French?
    Please tell me more!

  • 15. A collaborative solution
    Create a paragraph using common errors made by your students.
    Put them in groups of 3 or 4 and ask them to identify and correct the mistakes.
    Can be done on computer via typewith.me, google docs, etc.
    Or just do it on the board with different coloured markers!
    Make sure they review their own work afterwards and look for similar mistakes.
  • 16. Doesn’t it all take a lot of time (preparation and class time)?
    Yes, but it’s worth it!
    Can kids really think critically in this way?
    You’d be surprised!
    During collaborative error correction, don’t they use a lot of L1?
    Yes, but so what? 
    Questions I’m often asked...
