Teachers of English often use Role plays.
They assign students roles – a waiter, customer, doctor or patient. Such Role plays are very useful for speaking, but teens are unlikely to get involved in them. In my talk I’ll give a few ideas how to introduce Role plays to a teenage class.
When I talk about Role-Play-Games (RPGs) I do not mean Drama activities and Role-plays “In a café,” “At the doctor’s,” which many teachers are familiar with. RPGs are a special type of a game, which is an interactive story with only basic plot elements. Players describe their actions through narrative and this is how the story develops. The players make decisions based on their traits of character and special skills (they describe them in Character Profile at the beginning of the game). To see if players’ decisions are successful or not, we use a 20-sided dice. A person, who makes a decision, rolls the dice and if the result is “successful” (e.g. from 15 to 20) his or her suggested action is a success, but if not – he or she fails and something bad happens.
‘Implementing Wellbeing in the Classroom’
Headwise Education Consultancy will present an introduction to positive education and its key benefits for students, teachers and schools. You will hear about a range of tools and ideas to help promote student wellbeing in the classroom and how they relate to academic achievement and sustainable wellbeing.
Workshop – 45 mins
In this 45 minute workshop we will look at language and how we can use it to create an environment that supports positive education. Strong relationships – between students, staff, parents and school leaders – require ”fertile soil” in which to develop and support a positive school culture that supports academic achievement.
At the end of this workshop you will have practical tools and techniques, including key language, to promote students’ intrinsic motivation, strengthen classroom and organisational relationships and increase your understanding of how you communicate.
