1. WEBQUESTS (computer room use)
Students are encouraged to explore websites looking for information. At the lower levels webquests are tightly guided and the tasks are relatively easy. At higher levels they are more research oriented.
   
Aim:
To encourage students to skim and scan texts for information. To provide experience following instructions.
Context:
Webquests are used in the computer room. Students can work on their own or in pairs. Pairwork has the advantage of promoting incidental discussion and discovery.
It is assumed that a teacher will be there to guide and assist.

2. DISCUSSION MATERIALS (main classroom use)
Our discussion materials are for use in the main classroom. They comprise discussion questions often using pictures as stimulus.
For the pre-beginner level they comprise model dialogues.
Aim: To encourage discussion on familiar topics.
Context:
It is expected that a teacher will guide the discussions.

3. CLASSROOM WORKSHEETS (main classroom use)
Classroom Worksheets provide activities based around topics.

Aim:
To provide more interaction with key vocabulary. To provide experience following instructions.
Context: These handouts are for use in the mainstream classroom. They are linked to the topics at the various levels. It is anticipated that the instructions may
be difficult for students at lower levels and teacher support will be necessary for some handouts.

4. COMPUTER ROOM DIARY (computer room use)
The diary is useful for tracking students' progress.

Aim: To monitor students' work and to develop and encourage reflective record keeping.
Context: This document can be printed out and used as a record of materials studied. The records can be kept in the computer room and updated for each session.
The comments' section can be used by students to reflect on their work and/or it can be used by teachers during progress discussions.    View or print the Diary
