Group work in class: Spell it right!

Posted by willie in Education | 7 Comments

Some teachers may feel that group work is a good method of teaching, but for me, it will be a total failure if teachers fail to control the students particularly students from end classes. When doing a group work, a few things to do: 1. Tell them clearly your set of rules and regulations. 2. Don’t let the naughty ones to be in one group. 3. Monitor them strictly. So if you practice these three tips, you shouldn’t have any problems.

I taught my weak students spelling (they were from my end class) last month. I asked them to spell words in groups of four to five. The words were; FRIENDS, IMPORTANT, CLASSMATES and TOGETHER. So! let’s see…

Group A: FRIENDS, IMPOTENT, CLASSMATE, TOGETHER

Group B: FRIENDS, IN STABLE,CLASS MATHEMETIC, TOGEDER

Group C: FRIENDS, IMPORTANT, CLASS MATH, TOGETHER

Group D: FRIENDS, IMPORTANT, CLASS MATH, TOGETHER

In conclusion: It’s never easy to teach spelling to end classes. Huhu!

    I guess, even not weak students need spelling practice especially now that they tend to write words like they’re sending sms. 🙂 Group A had fun with “impotent” hahaa!
