HELPING LEARNERS USE CHUNKS COMMUNICATIVELY

 

In this video we talk about how we can help our students use chunks communicatively - we share 4 ideas that have worked well for us in the classroom. We’re using an interactive video quiz in one of our ideas, which you can find here.

Enjoy!

hi, I just love the door this opens to more creative learning, quiz and test taking even. One questions- If I would like to use a video for a class quiz or test, how can I show questions and continue without showing correct answer until the end? Is there a way for this to happen? I would like to use for listening comprehension and/or reading comprehension... thanks so much you guys!!!!
