課程: Dream Ex-Change - Designing an exchange program for your form
指導說明: Group Interaction - Speaking Skills (F.3 English)
導師（學校）: Wong Yee Tung Harries（Methodist College）
This lesson plan focuses on developing students' speaking skills in group discussions through a multimodal approach that includes brainstorming, note-taking, and visual aids. Self and peer evaluation are also emphasized to improve communication skills. Areas to highlight include the importance and value of active listening and giving constructive response to others.
To enhance their ability to respond to others in a group discussion, students were presented with a few scenario-based questions designed to recapitulate their previously learned discussion skills. Teachers can revisit some skills if necessary.
To practice their group discussion skills, students were divided into groups and engaged in a discussion. Following the discussion, students were prompted to use a thinking tool to evaluate their own performance as well as their peers' performance, with a focus on the lesson's objectives.
As students worked in groups to prepare their dream exchange destination presentations, they were reminded of the importance of selecting a visually appealing aid to introduce their destination. Specifically, they were asked to select one compelling image that effectively captured the essence of their destinations and the purpose of the exchange program.
To summarize and consolidate their group discussions, students were asked to deliver their presentations in class at the end of the activity. Afterwards, a poll card was used to collect students' preference as peer feedback to students' presentation.
