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!

Thank you. I will certainly use this! FYI #7's question should read box and cat not box and box. ;)

Thank you for this excellent lesson! Just a heads up, #7 should say "the box is ___ the CAT" not box twice. :)
