Text speak recap task

18 Jul


Thanks to Jackie Hutchinson for this recap and mini assessment task that uses a bit of innovative practice when students find it impossible to resist using their phones.

Overview: Very simple review which will appeal to your students – especially those who use their mobile phones in class.

Number of people: any group size.

Materials: None – they bring it!

Time: 10 minutes at the end of class (summative assessment).


  1. Students work independently, writing two or three main points learned during the lesson using TEXT shortcuts.
  2. Pick some of the most creative attempts and have students write them up on the board or add to a continual ‘What we are learning’ display using correct English language.
  3. Group discuss language use and language evolvement plus suitability for professional use.
