"Getting students to do speaking homework has always been quite a challenge, but for those students with smartphones we can now get them using free apps to practice and develop their speaking abilities. This speaking tasks requires the download of a free app called the VTR2 Video Recording Teleprompter from http://vrt2.com/."

City lilacs In crack-haunted alleys, overhangs, plots of sour earth that pass for gardens, in the space between wall and wheelie bin, where men with mobiles make urgent conversation, where bare-legged girls shiver in April winds, where a new mother stands on her doorstep and blinks at the brightness of morning, so suddenly born - in all these places the city lilacs are pushing their cones of blossom into the spring to be taken by the warm wind.
Shona Whyte's insight:

I Am Poems

I Am Poems | TELT | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein:

"The "I Am Poem" is a template-based poem that requires students to represent themselves in the form of poetry as well as in visual form."

 

Shona Whyte:

This is a great activity for intermediate learners and above, or it could be simplified for young learners.  Class members write a poem about themselves using the template, then e-mail their poems with a photo to a Flickr account or shared Google Docs presentation.  All class members can view each others' poems, and they can then be shared in class with each person reading their contribution aloud.
