Interactive Methods of Teaching English
My work is devoted to the methods of teaching English. Language came Into life as a mean of communication. It exists and Is alive only through speech. When we speak about teaching a foreign language, we first of all have in mind teaching it as a mean of communication. In teaching speech the teacher has to cope with two tasks.
They are: to teach his pupils to understand the foreign language and to teach them to speak the language. So, speech is a bilateral process.It includes hearing, on the one hand, and speaking, on the other. When we say “hearing” we mean adding or listening and comprehension. Speaking exists in wow forms: dialogue and monologue. My purpose here is to explore the Interactive methods of teaching English that have attracted the attention of the teachers in recent years, to show reason for interest in them, in what they are exploring, in what they accomplish, the principles and ideas that guide them.I shall make a lesson plan and during the lesson I shall experience the interactive methods of teaching which give the foreign language teacher the possibility to master some new techniques of communicative methods of foreign language training.
Teacher has to organize different forms of activity at the foreign engage classes that is individual, pair, group and team. I shall present the most well known form of pair and group work the following kinds should be mentioned: inside (outside) circles, brainstorm, line-ups, Jigsaw reading, think-pair-share, debate, and so on.Audio-Visual Methods in Teaching. Audio-visual methods in teaching can improve classroom instruction and student understanding. Hearing students are more focused on spoken than written. The recordings of lectures and films are useful for students to auditory and nuances of the language, like the timbre and tone of the gathering. Brainstorming method.
Brainstorming with a group of people is a powerful technique. Brainstorming creates new ideas, solves problems, motivates and develops teams.Use Brainstorming well and you will see excellent results in improving the organization, performance, and developing the team. Your Job as facilitator Is to encourage everyone to participate, to dismiss nothing, and to prevent others from pouring scorn on the wilder suggestions Debate method. Debate or “stressing” Is a method of Interactive and representational argument. The major goal of the study of debate as a method or art is to develop one’s ability to play from either position with equal ease. Jigsaw reading method.
Students of an average sized class (26 to 33 students) are divided into competency groups of four to six students, each of which is given a list of subtopics to research. Individual members of each group then break off to work with the “experts” from other groups, researching a part of the material being studied, after which they return to their starting group In the role of instructor for their subcategory. The strategy is an efficient teaching method that also encourages listening, engagement, interaction, peer teaching, and cooperation. Graded Readers.Teaching English can be pretty dull if you don ‘t incorporate some reading and discussion in your classes that can handle an activity like this. You can have your students read them for pleasure, or as a class assignment. Be sure to have your students choose a book that they are Interested In, easily understand 95% of the vocabulary or more.
Reading should ‘t be a struggle of looking up words in the dictionary. Movie Projects One enjoyable project you can do with students that are advanced enough is a movie project. You can either assign it as homework or do it in class.
