Problem page extra handouts for E2-L1
I created these hand-outs for my Entry 1 to Level 1 learners and used them to accompany Saul Pope’s E3-L2 Problem Page resource (see below for a link to Saul’s resource).
I found the resources very useful for both motivational purposes (all students enjoyed the discussion aspect) and also to inform future planning (all students found it difficult putting pen to paper when writing their response).
The initial hand-out (page 1) is an example problem and response taken from a contemporary magazine. This is followed up by group work and Socratic questioning as set out on pages 2-3. The Socratic questioning techniques were useful for both the students and me and helped keep the group on task.
Ideal for improving both writing and discussion skills in mixed ability groups.
