Basic rules of this hopefully a little useful and enjoyable project are as folows: 1. Thank you. Points to bear in mind when sharing an activity (please read as they are important for the original idea of the project – thanks Michael Griffin for these): * Activities are ideally generalized enough to various contexts and teaching situations. * Activities ideally don’t involve much in the way of prep and tech. * Activities are ideally easily modeled/explained/used with students. * Activities ideally can be completed in a short amount of time.

FlashmobELT. Here is one of my favourite activities to practise writing stories (an important exam skill and just a fun thing to do!)

flashmobELT

: Each student has a slip of paper and needs to write the first sentence of the sory. Two rules: it should something more exciting than "Once upon a time... " - something dramatic or unusual or funny, and it has to introduce the main hero (so "it was a lovely Saturday evening" won't go either). It could be something like, "When Linda saw a strange figure limping towards her in the dark alley, she realized she had left her chainsaw at home that day. " or "Humphrey Bumblebee never liked cucumbers, especially the red ones".

Teens come up with most unexpected and brilliant stuff! Then they pass the paper to the next person, who reads the sentence and writes down one word they want to be used in the story. Then they pass it on to the next person, who adds one more word, etc. Word of the day: fascinate. Leave comments on a blog - Blogger Help.
