1 school wide strategy recommendation to principal

1. School-wide strategy (Recommendation to principal)

Pupils to attend a 5 weeks Phonetics Course conducted by external

vendors after school hours. (3 times a week x 2 hours)

  • At the start of the course, pupils will individually use Audacity to record themselves reading a passage that has been prepared by the ELL department. They will listen to their audio recording and reflect on their pronunciation of grammatical and lexical words.

  • At the end of the course, pupils will again record themselves reading the same passage. They will upload the recordings on a class blog. Their classmates will comment on the recordings, based on what they have learnt during the Phonetics Course.

  • At the end of the 5 weeks, in groups, pupils will carry out a role-play based on a script prepared by the English Department. They will be assessed based on a rubric, with the focus being on proper pronunciation and enunciation. The best group will participate in an inter-class competition during assembly (as mentioned in slide 4).

  • Individually, pupils will sit for their Oral Exam.


How strategy relates to cognitivism

How strategy relates to Cognitivism

  • Pupils are explicitly taught the rules of the plural and past tense forms.

  • Pupils are able to develop knowledge through analysis of the different words (public speaking, pronouncing words on flash cards)

  • The use of IT, discussion, role play and the other assessments modes ensure that the pupils are actively engaged throughout the process.
