ROUNDTABLE:

ROUNDTABLE

What did I observe during TE?:

What did I observe during TE? When? Beginning of lesson What? ‘Types of film genres’ and ‘Words related to film’ that students have seen or heard. How? No noise, only a piece of paper and a pen in each group, each students took their turn to write down response and continued on until the time was up. Then each groups took turn sharing what they have written down. Why? Brainstorming and eliciting vocabulary from previous knowledge.

Adaptation of strategy: :

Adaptation of strategy: What can be added: >> Clearly explain how the activity is carried out and impose some rules: Students are not allow to pass their turn twice in a row. >> Group discussion to discuss best 3/4/5 ideas/information and why in their group before sharing with the whole class what they have written down. This way, the students can have more, as well as engaging in a more meaningful interaction as opposed to simply writing down and then share what they have written (as seen during TE).

Roundtable Revised:

Roundtable Revised Explain rules Divide students to different groups of 4-5 A piece of paper and a pen in each group Carry out roundtable Group discussion Share information

Purpose of strategy:

Purpose of strategy Brainstorming ideas: activating prior knowledge Information gathering: can generate a large response to a single/number of questions Meaning-focused interaction

Adaptation of strategy: When can I use roundtable?:

Adaptation of strategy: When can I use roundtable? To engage students/warm-up activity(Pre-task) E.g. When introducing a new topic: Today we are going to learn about Malaysia: Food Heaven > Students could activate prior knowledge of the topic and engage in the topic through discussion >Teacher could get general idea of what students already/don’t already know >Students with different views → Critical and creative thinking (KBKK)

Slide 7:

To gather information from what have been read/seen/heard in preparation for next task(Post/Pre-task) When making a transition from one task to another E.g. Watch a video → roundtable → write an essay >Students with different views → Critical and creative thinking (KBKK)

Slide 8:

To wrap up lesson/revise previous lesson(Post-task) E.g. What have we learned today/yesterday > Can be a session for teacher to gather information of what students understand: assessing and reflecting on the success and effectiveness of lesson. > A quick session might need to omit the discussion part; just share and check

Awareness of practicalities in Malaysia:

Awareness of practicalities in Malaysia Can be applied in large classes like we have in Malaysia. Inclusive of students with different learning styles so every student could have a say and contribute. Student-centred as opposed to teacher-centred. Teacher has to be very specific in what information they are trying to elicit to not let students deviate. Quiet working space might result in students losing attention = free loader Teacher cannot monitor all groups at the same time if it is a big class. Plus Minus

Awareness of practicalities(cont.):

Awareness of practicalities(cont.) Could be integrated with a variety of task. For example with reading, writing, speaking, listening activities. Can be highly useful for content-based lesson, literature component, as well as for vocabulary lesson. For some lesson, might not be able to engage so much in meaningful interaction especially if the question is straightforward (different types of film genres, as seen in TE). Plus Minus
