Transcript of "Important Issues Related To Designing Materials"

  1. 1. Important Issues Related to Designing and Creating Material/ Activities Why should we design activities for our students? Advantages  The textbook doesn’t fullfil the students’ needs  Presenting things in a new way (more personalized)  Creating your own material and adapting to students’ levels  You need to listen to your students opinion about what they want and what they think is important  You need to motivate your students and when you choose something specific for them, it must be something that really touches them, that motivates them We are talking about activities not materials- Moon page 88 Drawbacks  Time consuming  Teacher needs to have experience  Expensive: consuming paper and causing environmental demages What is important to take into consideration when you create materials?  Goal  Input  Procedures  Outcome  Teacher roles  Learner roles  Organization  Make something that lasts long like: flashcards and board games, for instance, and laminate things.  Make big things that can be seen by everybody in class  The most important thing is not the material but how this material can help your student  Provide the students material which can help them to develop the language  Material which can be done by all the students  If they have learned some topic you, as a teacher, needs to motivate them to use the new language inside and outside classroom  The activities can be simple in terms of material and rich in terms of outcome. bibliography  Cant, A. and Superfine, W.
