The special legal terms are organized in a graphic organizer; this way of teaching supports constructive way of learning. As students have previous knowledge on these terms, they can build on this knowledge when building new information on them. Finding the odd-one-out examples activates learners’ previous knowledge, makes them focus on several vocabulary areas so that they could find the item that does not fit the group of words. This way of learning supports skills of analysis and global learning: learners have to find the differences and similarities between the items in a group. The graphic organizers support visual learners.
A warmer task could be the give a title to each group of words so that learners could focus on one field of law. Step 1 could be to make learners to make sentences with each word. If the task sheet is used in classroom settings, this exercise can be completed in group work format. Step 2 is to match the word with the right definition. Step 3 is to make students create definitions for each word in thematic groups. If they work in groups, then definitions can be made in groups; if it is individual work, then the learner can choose one theme.
