LDK #7-Teaching or Testing--AT THE RIGHT TIME  


In the English classroom, we are usually doing teaching, practicing, reviewing or testing activities.  

Using a testing activity at the wrong time can create negative feelings in the students.  Be careful to understand which activities are testing in nature, and use them at the right times!
The greatest challenge when using a testing activity in the classroom is

to make it a low-affective experience for the students (remember LDK #2? Be Mindful of Your Students’ Feelings).  You can:

  • Make it a game (SWAT, using fly-swatters at the blackboard, Karuta style);
  • Make it part of a game (losing students in Hot Potato must stand and say a sentence/question after each round);
  • You can ask first for choral answers, then ask for a single volunteer; 
  • Let the students decide, then answer, as a group;
  • Let a pair of students speak in front of the teacher apart from the others; 
  • Students can check each others’ work, especially when using the workbook;
  • Students, after passing the test in front of the teacher, become teachers, and can then test the other students. 
Testing in a low-affective way is not easy to do--be aware and be creative!
