Speaking and Listening Assessment L. O. To understand the task, the assessment criteria and be able to organise yourselves in groups
Speaking and Listening For the next two lessons you will be working in groups to produce and perform a speaking and listening task. You will be given an issue to discuss and debate. You will then perform this for the rest of the class and you will be assessed against the speaking and listening criteria.
Speaking and Listening You will be given 3 sets of criteria: 1. One set of criteria will guide you whilst working in a group. 2. One set of criteria will help you to use effective techniques and skills in your task. 3. One set of criteria will inform you of what you are being assessed for.
Speaking and Listening We will be focusing on: AF 2 Talking with others Listen and respond to others, including in pairs and groups, shaping meanings through suggestions, comments and questions. During your performance to the class I will award you a level – it is up to you to choose the level you want to work towards and do your best to achieve that level (look at your target level for guidance)
Speaking and Listening Level AF 2 Talking with others Listen and respond to others, including in pairs and groups, shaping meanings through suggestions, comments and questions 6 Across a range of contexts • engage with complex material making perceptive responses, showing awareness of the speaker’s aims and extending meanings • adopt group roles and responsibilities independently, drawing ideas together and promoting effective discussion 5 Across a range of contexts • recognise significant details and implicit meanings, developing the speaker’s ideas in different ways • sustain roles and responsibilities with independence in pairs or groups, sometimes shaping overall direction of talk with effective contribution 4 Across a range of contexts • show generally clear understanding of content and how it is presented, sometimes introducing new material or ideas • take on straightforward roles and responsibilities in pairs and groups
Speaking and Listening The other criteria you will work towards is on the next sheet on your table – this will help you to focus as a group, get the most out of your time together and achieve your objective You should read through the roles on the sheet and, as a group, choose the role that best suits each person
Speaking and Listening The task: You will be given an issue to discuss and debate During your performance you should: Listen and respond to others sensitively Give your point of view Be persuasive in your argument Use various techniques to enhance your argument – persuasive techniques, counter argument, connectives (use the success criteria to help you)
Speaking and Listening Success Criteria for a Persuasive, Balanced Argument We have stated our point of view clearly in the introduction and the conclusion We have backed each argument with relevant evidence and detail Our argument is mainly in the present tense We have used connectives • To structure the argument: first, finally • To link ideas within the argument: so, also, but, therefore, furthermore, because, consequently, as a consequence, in addition, however, on the other hand, in conclusion, to sum up the argument We have used persuasive devices such as • Statistics: ‘More than 50%. . . ’ • Emotive language; strong adjective • Rhetorical questions: ‘Are we to believe that …. ’ We have used verbs: Present tense, passive, conditionals (would, could, might, if, unless) We have used rhetorical questions: ‘Are we to believe that …. ’ We have used emotive language: No one can deny, some people believe
Speaking and Listening Independent learning Read through the sheet on your desk – this is your task You should now have chosen your roles and be ready to start the task Read through the task and success criteria (2) and begin discussing and writing notes – the ‘host’ will not get a higher level just for hosting the debate
Speaking and Listening Task: WHO SHOULD LOOK AFTER LYRA? Discuss the different candidates, making notes as you go, to decide who is the most capable of looking after Lyra.
Speaking and Listening Hand in all of your work with your group’s name on it. In tomorrow’s lesson you will continue to debate but you should be ready to practise and perform.
