Learner KWI

Self Assessment Form

Evaluation Forms

The students use this first to evaluate the teacher presentation, then for peer evaluation. A good idea to have the students examine the document and explain that they need to be aware of the evaluation as they prepare. So a preperation checklist as well as an evaluation form

Classroom Management



Rather than extensive explanations, the teacher provides a presentation and classroom discussion follows. In my view this is a pilot project with a fair amount of teacher direction. As the basic skills emerge, so will greater creative opportunity. There is also a need to differntiate learner abilities. So guess about the middle and anticipate variety.

Presentation schedule

Gavin, students use this to organize responsibilities. I think it's a good idea for the teacher to attend carefully, ask students to submit the forms early on. There can be 'imbalances' with one or two doing most of the work.

For learners to demonstrate an ability to conduct research using the internet. 4. For learner to demonstrate a confidence in talking in front of an audience.
