"In this programme we look at a reality many teachers face: very large classes – and using group work as a technique to get everyone working actively. We hear from teachers on how they use group work and look at techniques for managing large classes. How do you feel about teaching large classes?"

 

Programme Summary: Large classes are a reality for many teachers around the world – especially in the state sector. If we want to develop our students’ fluency and ability to communicate in English then using group work will help. If set up carefully, it will give all the students a chance to participate and practise. The teacher’s role changes during group work. While the students work in groups the teacher moves away from the front of the class and quietly monitors. During this part of the lesson, you are giving more responsibility to your students and there are many rewards. Group work can be highly motivating for students. They participate and are active and we can
draw on our students’ own knowledge and experience. As Mirany says, ‘Dynamism springs from the group’
