Dgtall Relative Clauses Dgtall Relative Clauses Presentation Transcript

  • Digital Gaming in Teaching & Language Learning
    • Do you teach English as a foreign language?
    • Do you teach young learners?
    • Do you want to use online computer games in class to engage your learners?
    • Then you have come to the right place.
  • You can use online computer games for all kinds of different skills work.
    • Speaking
    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Listening
    • You just have to figure out how to adapt them.
  • Here are a few online games I use to engage my learners in a writing task.
    • They are good for:
    • Narrative tenses.
    • Defining/ non defining relative clauses.
    • Linking devices.
    • Narrative language structures.
  • This one is very popular:
    • You click on the icons on either side of the cube and it grows.
    • Here’s what the cube looks like if you click on the icons in the correct order.
  • WHAT IS THE CORRECT ORDER?
    • Yellow Man Water Orange yellow and green shapes Wooden pot Blue pipe Fire White bowl Bone Spring Red ball
  • But how do I use this with my students?
    • I’ve written out a nice little lesson plan for this game here:

  • But in a nutshell I played while my learners watched and one of them wrote . . .
  • Hang on! That first line has got a relative clause at the end.
    • Let’s get that story up on the board!
    • NOW!
  • But in a nutshell I played while my learners watched and one of them wrote . . .
  • Hang on! That first line has got a relative clause at the end.
    • Let’s get that story up on the board!
    • NOW!
  • The text is now on the board. My learners took it in turns to come up and place a dot where a relative clause could go and told the class what it was.
  • Here’s what we got:
    • Learners copied this out and writing in the relative clauses.
    • Bye for now.
    • Look out for more slideshows covering different language areas and skills work.
