Information gap
« on: December 07, 2009, 06:42:16 PM »
After the readings that I either distributed in class for in-class reading or in the previous class as assignment, one way to check to see whether students get the main ideas and to help them summarize is to get them talk about the readings in small groups.
I would make handouts with different versions for this information gap activity.  In the activity, students have to pair up or group up and communicate to elicit the full statement for their own worksheet.
This information gap activities can be two-way or one-way.  It is also a good way to get students work in group and negotiate the meaning of the reading via collaborative learning.
