Starter of the week – How do I communicate?

This is a nice little starter that gets students thinking about how and who they talk to during their day. As the students come in give out the mini task slip HOW DO I COMMUNICATE and get them to think about and discuss who they have spoken to that day, what they spoke about and how they spoke.

This task really gets the students thinking as it’s suprising just how many people they have spoken to and acts as a foundation for discussing formal and informal speaking and listening. I have extended this activity for students by giving them a large piece of flip chart paper and felt tips then asked them to draw a road/path from one end to another. On the road/path they have indicated who they have talked to and what about through drawings then presented their work to the class.
