A Poster for Any Occasion
Fishman, Samuel
English Teaching Forum, v57 n2 p35-37 2019
When the author began teaching in Paraguay, he ran into a series of classroom challenges familiar to English teachers around the world: a classroom overflowing with students, a large range of English abilities, and insufficient textbooks and traditional teaching resources. The activity described in this article is a one-size-fits-all activity that spurns textbooks and expensive materials in favor of creativity, dynamism, and fun. Students work together to design a creative project and present the final product to the class. The activity usually lasts a little over an hour, depending on the number of students and groups participating, and the gist is as follows: Students form groups, work together to create a poster and presentation, and present before the class. Each group in the class designs a creative example within a shared category. This streamlined format offers endless opportunities for experimentation and innovation.
