This can be a whole class exercise starting with the brainstorming activity.First, brainstorm as outlined in the PPT. Students make visuals (save space for all groups)Then, go over the exercises on p 20, 21. Linking exercises. Ask teams to present linking phrases if there is time as a group activity.Then, Have them return to the board and add linking language. Looks good but still not interesting.Then have them go to the board and add concrete examples, details that are interesting to the audience, by the way, did you see the news, or mucis groups, comedians, real life day to day activities.
Ever feel that you are able to discuss the main points properly but are unable to say it in a structured, logical, story telling way?This chapter helps us organize our presentation through the use of linking vocabulary.Two principal objectives: develop the ability to organize information to encourage the use of language to clearly indicate the various stages of the presentation
After viewing: Geoff uses the technique of “signaling” to indicate the end of one part of the presentation and the start of another.These linking phrases are like the opening and the closing of a door on your topic. Open, talk, then close the door.Open the next, talk, then close that one, etc.
Spoken language needs frequent redundancy because unlike written language, we cannot stop and re-read a section.Redundancy and repetition is common in the English language. We “paraphrase” our thoughts in order to repeat the message that sounds natural.
Add Specifics to give concrete details here. ICRT, Lady Gaga, Hip Hop 50 Cent, Frank Blunt.
