Motivating advanced EFL learners
« on: February 13, 2017, 03:33:21 PM »
Interests to EFL learners are significant in regard to reading and writing, so students should be given a chance to provide their preferences for books that they are interested in reading. However, it would be hard to manage if everyone chooses a different reading book. One of the solutions is to create a survey on Poll Everywhere or similar platforms. In the survey, teachers should provide multiple options for students to give their preferences.After selecting a book, teachers can assign different chapters to each group and ask students to give a group presentation on the chapters assigned to them at a certain time during class. If the book is a novel or autobiography, an alternative way is to do role play.
[/size]In regard to writing, one thing that teachers can do is to play a TED talk (ingenious type is my personal preference) to the class and then ask students to discuss in pair about the highlights of the talk. Afterwards, students need to write down a summary of the talk in paragraph length.
