Beat the Teacher!

(This week’s teaching tip has been shared by Val Rice).

1. Give the students a piece of text covering the subject taught in the previous lesson, the text will have deliberate mistakes in it.
2. Each student has to identify & correct the mistakes in a set period of time.
3. A student reads the text until they come across a mistake – they then correct it; the next student then carries on reading & so on.  This ensures that all the class is engaged in the activity & they will quickly react if a student reading the text misses a mistake.
