A communicative classroom means exactly that : students must communicate, and the role of the teacher is to create situations where genuine communication will occur. Unfortunately, too often the communication veers off-task and the role of the teacher changes from facilitating to policing.
A related concern for the communicative teacher in a groupwork situation is how to assess one group, reliably and validly, without other students and groups making poor choices.
What : The Británico Group Oral Test addresses all the above in a simple, teacher-friendly, authentic and student-centred activity providing :
- individual prepared oral presentations
- chaired group discussions
- spontaneous and genuine student particiaption
- assessments of the three performances or skill-sets above
in a multi-group, large class environment.
Who : All teachers who seek to use student participation as an element of the teaching and learning process. All teachers who wish to assess students authentically and reliably in a teacher-friendly, student-centred activity.
