This requires less teamwork for the detectives and is a lot more difficult for the suspects. For more adaptations of the alibi game you can read part 2 by clicking here. You can follow the site by clicking the box below the comments, find me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.

James Egerton September 16, at am Reply. This means that their alibi must be very detailed what clothes they were wearing, how they got to their destination, where they sat, what they ate, who paid, who was there, what they talked about etc etc. Whilst the pair are outside you can prepare some questions with the rest of the class and write them on the board.
The key grammar point is use of past tense, and the distinction between perfect and imperfect tense - what were you wearing? After about five minutes you invite one of the suspects in and they sit at the front. The class then puts up hands to ask questions using the crib sheet on the board to help. The teacher just chooses who to speak and throws in extra questions if pupils dry up. You may choose one student to act as a scribe to record testimony. After about 10 minutes the second suspect is invited in, swears the oath and answers questions. The first suspect may stay in the room if you are sure they won't cheat by gesturing answers to their alleged partner-in-crime.
Finally, having weighed up the similarities and differences between the two stories, the class can vote to decide if the suspects are guilty or innocent. It is also a very flexible format, because if the class is reluctant to speak, the teacher can take the lead and provide lots of good "comprehensible input". This is alright, as you can sensibly correct where necessary, then go through it after the activity. In this case communication trumps accuracy. Oh, and one last thing, the game demands nil preparation. Try it. See what you think. Post a Comment.
Popular posts from this blog Delayed dictation. January 15, Instead of getting students to transcribe immediately what you say, or what a partner says, you can enforce a 10 second delay so that students have to keep running over in their heads what they have heard. Some teachers have even used the delay time to try to distract students with music. It reminds me of a phenomenon in music called audiation. I use it frequently as a singer and I bet you do too. Audiation is thought to be the foundation of musicianship.

It takes place when we hear and comprehend music for which the sound is no longer or may never have been present. When we have a song going round in our mind we are audiating. When we are deliberately learning a song we are audiating. In our language teaching case, though, the earworm is a word, chunk of l…. Read more.
Full Lesson Plan Overview
Sentence Stealers with a twist. February 22, Sentence Stealers is a reading aloud game invented by Gianfranco Conti. I'll describe the game to you, then suggest an extension of it which goes a bit further than reading aloud. This is how it works: Display around 15 sentences on the board, preferably ones which show language patterns you have been working on recently or some time ago. Hand out four cards or slips of paper to each student. On each card students must secretly write a sentence from the displayed list. Students then circulate around the class, approaching their classmates and reading a sentence from the displayed list.
If the other person has that sentence on one of their cards, they must hand over the card.
