Brainstorm the key vocabulary concerning the topics of the online methodological dictionary: assessing learning, learner characteristics, managing learning, methods, pedagogical approach, planning learning, teaching activities, teaching techniques, work modes.
Step 1. Explaining the project to the students. The students work in groups of 4. Each group has to choose 4 topics (there are 8 topics altogether, all of them have to be covered.)
Step 2. As a homework the students have to prepare a Quizlet, on and offline, about their topic (they can print their online Quizlet or create hand-made cards).
Step 3. The students upload their Quizlets onto the project sharing platform so that everyone can see and learn them and then bring their own cards to the lesson. Their deadline is in two weeks. This process will allow students to recognise and practise vocabulary from their and the other students’ methodological topic. In addition to practising their high-order thinking skills, they develop the technical vocabulary as well.
Step 4. In the lesson they sit in a circle and practice the topics with a game. In the game the students have to explain the topic at hand without revealing the name of it. The others have to guess what it is and write down their notes in their exercise-books. If they get it right, they get a point. These points can be added to the end-term test result.
Step 5. The teacher distributes a card to each student at the same time. Everyone has 5 minutes to examine their card and plan how they want to explain the topic to their peers. While summarising their topics, students have to use the technical vocabulary introduced and practised with the Quizlets.
Step 6. Each student has 4 minutes to explain their topics to the others. In addition to practising their presentations skills, students develop their speaking and listening skills as well.
