Improving speaking and listening through collaborative learning teach meet

  1. 1. Improving speaking and listening through collaborative learning @helenlochead
  2. 2. The problem… AS and A2 students lacking confidence when speaking about Chemistry • Volume of technical and scientific vocabulary • First language other than English • Significant intervention at KS4/GCSE • Social groups
  3. 3. Find someone who Can be used as a revision activity Can be used as a teaching activity (if students are all given one piece of information to teach to each other)
  4. 4. You must have: 1. The answer 2. The person you spoke to 3. The follow up question you asked for polymers Peptide link between alanine and glycine Kevlar monomer 2 Kevlar Terylene Nylon-6,6 monomer 1 Lactic acid Nylon-6,6 Polylactic acid Kevlar monomer 1 Terylene monomer 1 Nylon-6,6 monomer 2 Terylene monomer 2 WWW: EBI: LR done?
  5. 5. Follow up questions... 1.That’s interesting, what makes you say that? 2. That’s true but why do you think that? 3. Can you explain how you worked that out? 4. How does that answer compare to this one? (Compare to another polymer) 5. That’s right but could you say it using more scientific language?
  6. 6. Quiz Quiz Trade 6 x questions (with answers) on separate slips of paper Each student has one slip Students move around the room and pair up Student 1 asks their Q and will either receive an answer or give the answer if student 2 is stuck (QUIZ) Student 2 asks their Q and will either receive an answer or give the answer if student 1 is stuck (QUIZ) Students TRADE their question slips
  7. 7. Rainbow grouping Students are put in a colour group to learn new information together and become experts Student are then put in a number group to share new information with other
  8. 8. Silent debate Writing = Speaking Reading = Listening http://www.pedagoo.org/2013/02/silent-debating/

  11. 11. Outcome • High quality chemistry conversations • Improved confidence when discussing scientific ideas • Collaborative classroom environment
