  31. 31. Advice when eliciting• Here is some advice for teachers about eliciting. Two pieces of advice are not good. Cross them out.
  32. 32. 1. Give a lot of information.2. Use your hand to show which learner should speak.3. Tell the learners clearly if they are correct or not.4. If someone gives an incorrect answer, ask them to repeat it two or three times and then say the correct answer yourself.5. If the learners don’t know the answer, don’t elicit for too long. Give them more information, or tell them the answer.6. When you have a correct answer, make sure everyone understands.7. Don’t use eliciting in monolingual classes.8. Use eliciting regularly in your lessons. Learners are active and involved in the lesson.
  33. 33. 4 and 7 are not good advice
  34. 34. Questioning and eliciting usingpictures • look at the picture of the boy eating crisps. • – Where are the people? • What is the boy in the middle doing? • What is the boy on the left doing? • How do the others feel? • How does the boy feel? • What can the others do? –
  35. 35. • Answers could be:• In the cinema (or theatre); He’s eating crisps (loudly); He is putting his hands over his ears; They are angry/annoyed; He is happy/satisfied; They can complain/tell him to stop.
  36. 36. • We have been using the picture to practise vocabulary.•• For example:• ▫ Nouns: crisps, cinema, theatre• ▫ Verbs: He is eating; He is putting; They can complain• ▫ Adjectives: angry, annoyed, happy, satisfied•
  37. 37. Brainstorm vocabulary for each picture – nouns, verbs,adjectives. Prepare questions to elicit this vocabulary.
  38. 38. Using pictures to elicit storieswhat questions couldyou ask about thepicture.For example: Who are the people? Where are they going? Why are they happy?
  39. 39. Follow up What story does the picture show? What happens next?Tell the story as a whole group. Now, you should use the picture as the background to a story which you can elicit from learners. You should think of a title and make notes (but not scripts) about your story. Then , you prepare questions you might ask to elicit the information needed for the story and any gestures that might be useful.
