Supporting ground rules
Support from the teaching assistant will be of great advantage in establishing ground rules as part of classroom practice.
- Look at the video examples clips where the teachers review the ground rules for effective speaking and listening, and jot down how that may have helped pupils in the rest of the lesson. Then view the longer version of the lessons to test your views.
- With a colleague, discuss ways in which you could support a teacher in establishing the ground rules for certain speaking and listening activities (e.g. a debate or interviewing a guest to the school).
