Grammar Team Teaching
What's the Breakfast of Champions? What's the high-energy food for every team?
Wheaties, of course! Have a big bowl of Wheaties with milk and just a little
sugar, and have a familiar team drink - Gatorade!
Either project this
link on a big screen . . . or
click on the link,
print out the material, and distribute to students
Have a blackboard or
whiteboard available for demonstrations,
and scratch paper and
pencils if teams want students to practice -
because every teammate
knows that practice makes perfect!
Go, Team! Go, Fight, Win!
Kids love to do things in teams. Let's transfer that
energy into working as small groups to teach other about grammar.
Larger groups of students can form teams, perhaps
pairing older kids with younger ones so that all age levels are balanced.
Then split up the following common grammar teaching
points among the teams. Give at least one to each team.
Each team can brainstorm how to teach them to other
students, and then take turns on the stage, as a team, teaching their
particular grammar lesson:
each presentation, the other teams can give that team points. But don't be
surprised if it ends up a massive tie!
