Grammar Games. Cognitive, Affective and Drama Activities for EFL Students.
A collection of 56 classroom games to be used in grammar instruction in English as a second language includes five game categories: (1) traditional, competitive games modified to allow students to work in small groups and show themselves and the teacher how much or how little grammar they know; (2) Silent Way or Silent Way-inspired exercises in which students build sentences and paragraphs in cooperation, rather than in competition, with each other; (3) exercises focusing on student-provided content within certain prescribed grammatical structures, designed to promote awareness of human relationships, as well as to provide grammar practice; (4) dramatic activities; and (5) miscellaneous grammar-practice activities. Each exercise is proposed for a specific level based on the grammar content, and notes about the use of the games and related activities in class are included. (MSE)
