106: Interpersonal Activities and Student Engagement

This is episode 5 in my 2023 summer headspace series. This is a chance to revisit episodes from the previous school year during the summer months when you may have a little extra time. Beginning August 28th, you will see new episodes with exciting new topics every Monday.  For today we take a look back at episodes 78 where Meredith White shares lots of interpersonal activities and episode 82 where Wendy Mercado and Valérie Greer give us a wealth of engaging language activities.  Let’s jump in.

  • Meredith White (76): how prescribed (curriculum) grammar and vocabulary come into play with communicative activities
  • effective interpersonal (and communicative) activities that we can use in our classrooms
  • Wendy Mercado & Valérie Greer (82): how “games” or “activities” address skill development and standards
  • lots of ideas for engaging activities and games
