We keep the following guidelines in mind when incorporating oral presentations into ELL instruction: — It can be easier and more motivating for students speaking a new language to deliver presentations on topics they find meaningful and interesting.
We try to give students opportunities to select their own topics as much as possible or to choose from a list of topics.
Once or twice a semester, students do a longer presentation (usually 5-8 minutes), many times with a partner or in a small group.
These presentations are often to another student or a small group.
We’ve found several benefits to incorporating opportunities for students to present to their peers in a positive and safe classroom environment.
It helps them focus on pronunciation and clarity and also boosts their confidence.
All students can be encouraged to actively participate in oral presentations by being given a listening task-- taking notes on a graphic organizer, providing written feedback to the speaker, using a checklist to evaluate presenters, etc.
—It is critical to provide ELLs, especially at the lower levels of English proficiency, with language support for oral presentations.The next step was to show up at the resort, about an hour southwest of Milwaukee, with ski gear and an open mind.” We’re all for this.
