Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I show students a picture ask them these questions giving them time they need to think and answer What can you see ? Where can you see all these things ? Did you attend a party ? When was that ? Did you enjoy it ? Why ?
The teacher gives students a paragraph and ask them to read to answer questions about it.Students go to break out rooms to read and answer questions . students give feedback when they share the answers on the main room .
I ask students to go to break to discuss these questions on the main room 1- Does the paragraph begin with a capital letter? 2-How does each sentence begin ? 3- How does each sentence end ? 4- which tense is used? Why ? 5-How does the paragraph end ? 7-How does names of people begin? giving them feedback
I ask students to fill in the a table on google docs to brain storm their ideas about a party . students go in break out rooms and work in groups . each group write the paragraph on google docs collaboratively by using ideas in the table. the teacher monitors and checks that every group is on the track . .
students work in two break out rooms students of group1 read the paragraph of group 2 they use a different pen to give feedback, while students of group 2 read the paragraph of group 1 they use a different colour to give feedback. after they finish they share ideas .and feedback. the teacher gives support and feedback for both groups. I then ask every group to write the final production .
