ESL Teachers and Students Making and Playing Games.
Gagne, Antoinette
SPEAQ Journal, v6 n1 p39-58 1982
Language learning games are dynamic, provide a change of pace, can be played individually or in groups, and can be integrated into classroom learning activities. Game-production activities are initially teacher-centered; gradually, students can work in groups with the teacher as resource person. During production activities, the four language skills can be practiced, and a more positive classroom atmosphere is created. Another advantage to game production activities is their flexibility. They can be adapted to the age and proficiency of the students and become a useful tool that can stimulate students to become actively involved in communication activities in the target language. Complete directions are provided for producing and playing four game-activities in an English as a second language class. The examples here are for various ability levels; each game can be adapted somewhat to become simpler or more complex. (AMH)
