In-Class Reading Comprehension Activity
« on: March 07, 2018, 08:51:01 PM »
  This activity could be an alternative to the conventional reading comprehension questions or pop-quizzes used to ensure students have read and understood the main concepts and plots of assigned readings.

Teachers can give students pictures of defining moments in an assigned chapter/reading with blanks at the bottom where the they can write down labels or notes. Each picture can have a number or letter at the top so that students can put the pictures in an order to show they understood the plot or arc of the story. The pictures can just give a hint of events on the assigned reading, so that no too much is given away. Depending on the level of the students, the blanks underneath the pictures can be quite long so that teachers can assess sentence construction, as well as spelling of newly -learnt vocabulary. After adding labels/ notes to each picture, students can cut them out and place them in chronological order based on the plot. Depending on time constraints, this activity can be presented by students in front of the class or the teacher can just provide the correct sequence and details of the reading.

Of course, such an activity could be done in groups and be modified based on the studentsí language learning level and maturity.
