Storyboard Text

  • Scenario #1 - Conversation Volleyball
  • Okay, You will ask the first question, so you can pick any topic you like. Are you ready?
  • Scenario #2 - Class Presentations
  • Hello. I will tell you about 'Wagashi.' They are Japanese sweets. They are a very important tradition in Japan....
  • Scenario #3 - English Drama Club
  • Conversation Volleyball is a communication game Mr. Carter does with his Advanced Course students individually. It requires students to utilize their grammar, speaking, and listening skills in order to have a conversation about random topics.
  • ...feedback...
  • Wow! You've really improved over the year. Your English is sounding more natural; but be careful with your grammar. If you keep practicing, you will be great at speaking English!
  • Students in Mr. Carter's class are required to conduct an oral presentation completely in English at the end of each half term. There are many students in the class, and time constraints are a factor, preventing immediate feedback.
  • ...feedback...
  • During Independent Study, students in the English Drama Club are preparing a musical to present at the school festival. ALL aspects of the performance are done by the students, with teachers present for support.
  • ...feedback...
  • Over time, students become better at communicating without hesitation and stress. Mr. Carter gives feedback that not only highlights strengths and challenges; but also encourages students that communication is NOT something they should fear.
  • To counteract this, students are given a detailed report based on an easy-to-read rubric that presents their grade, things done well, and areas to improve.
  • Rather than giving completely direct feedback, the teacher can encourage students to monitor themselves, and offer suggestions, keeping the responsibility on the students and preventing the teacher from assuming control.
  • Remember, the 3 important parts of a good performance are the singing, the dancing, and the English. How do you think the singing is right now? What do you think you can do to make it better?
