Qroup and pair work
You will never be able to give your students enough oral practice through whole class work. If you divide your students into pairs for just five minutes, each student will get more talking time during those five minutes than during the rest of the lesson. From the learners’ point of view, then, some pair work in the course of the lesson is absolutely essential. In general the lesson develops from strictly controlled pair work, where each individual question and answer is predictable, to less controlled pair work where individual students have a wide range. This is the student-to-student phase. There is a development from teacher-dominated to student-dominated activity.
According to Scrivener there are five types of student grouping common in the classroom: - the class working together with the teacher; - the whole class mixing together as individuals; - small groups (three to eight people); - pairs; - individual work. In any lesson a teacher may include work that involves a number of these different arrangements. Varying grouping is one way of enabling a variety of experiences for the learners.
Pair work and group work give the students far more chances to speak English in the classroom. Students participate in the lesson much more actively because they are involved in talking to their friends exchanging opinions, practising new structures more than listening to their teacher talking. So if a teacher has ten minutes left during the lesson it is better to divide the class into groups and pairs and to give the learners opportunity to really use the language to communicate with each other.
If the topics are adequate to the learners' interests and level such a lesson can be really effective and give a lot of satisfaction both to the learner and the teacher. We should always remember how important the ability to communicate is and provide enough communicative practice while working with the whole class. That is why oral practice in small groups and pairs is essential. Working in a group children are more engaged not only intellectually but emotionally as well. They have to think, contribute to the group, evaluate what other members of the group say, share information, ask friends for clarification, and prepare a presentation together.
BY teaching we will learn,by learing we will teach.
Pair and Group work
Classroom management can be:working with the whole class, group work, pair work and individual.
We want to present about pair and group management.
If students sit in the same seats for the entire year , they are likely to be paired with the same person.
Pair work is harder than group work because there are going to be many more pairs of students than groups of students. Be sure that everyone has a very clear understanding of the material before beginning any activity.
Pair work is great for practicing model dialogues, playing games conducting vocabulary checks, and completing worksheets. Working in pairs gives individual students a lot of speaking time. If working together, students will often have more confidence than when completing exercises individually. If students are competing with their partiners they will be more motivated. They can work in groups for role plays, races, games such as board games or card games and discussions.
In our presentation we’ll discuss working in groups give students the opportunity to create more complex dialogues, explore relationship between characters, knowledge together and have more learning environment.And there is a better chance for self correction or peer correction and for a discussion on a wider range of thoughts and opinions with larger group sizes. Pair and group work provide a medium to develop the students’ experience of collaboration, mutual respect and support.
The participiant teachers will be asked to work in pairs and groups using the activities. They’ll show and discuss their teaching ability when they choose the classroom management
