Feedback 4 Performance Tasks
I am creating this in order to make students aware of the neccesity of using the language in context. How can we do this? A form is performance tasks. Give them a real situation where they need to produce the language in order to obtain a result. With this the students can analize what they have produced and see what their strengths are and what they need to work on to improve. They need to use previous knowledge as well as new acquired knowledge in order for the learning to be meaningful. The teacher has to assign appropriate tasks according to their level and their prior knowledge. They need many mock up activities in order to understand how the tasks have to be presented.
I have thought of giving my students three performance tasks during the semester (it is also part of my program) in order to practice the language with the topics seen in class and that are are current.
