Teach to their needs

interactive oral This is flipchart two of my oral lesson with the senior students. The first page had images of the sun, gamma rays, what sunbeams were in French and a scientific diagram about the sun’s UV rays etc. I can just slide images onto the blank canvas of the Promethean board and talk as I explain or explain as I talk. Promoting and encouraging visual literacy as a means of increasing vocabulary and expression is working well for me . I wanted to explain the French word “beaming” – rayonnant. It meant the students were learning other words as I explained that and could see by the end of two boards of pictures and drawings that they actually knew a lot, had learnt a lot and could say a lot. By contrast, yesterday, I made them go on Google Maps and show me where they came from and where they were living. Even though I gave an example of that myself it wasn’t enough to properly support them. I have to TEACH them expression and vocabulary Role modelling it and using the interactive board makes that whole aspect of teaching and learning a language and expression so much more dynamic.
