Instruction giving in the classroom

Instruction giving in the classroom

Rafaela Campo

“I told my students what to do a million times but they all misunderstood my instructions and didn’t do what they were expected to do!” How many times have you said or thought this? How many times have you blamed your students for not getting your instructions instead of thinking if they were clear enough?

The success of many activities depends on good organization and on the students knowing exactly what they have to do. A lot of time can be wasted if the teacher omits to give students vital information and confusing instructions.

This workshop will analyse what makes a good instruction as well as sharing some tried and tested techniques.
