You’ve taught the language and now it’s time for your students to practise. Photocopying a gap fill task is quick, convenient and easy. I’ve done it. I’ve seen colleagues do it. There are times I still do it! However, it’s likely we are all aware that a gap fill is not the most interesting, challenging or interactive method we could use!

This session will introduce you to other ways of providing your students with meaningful and effective language practice beyond the limitations of the gap fill. We will identify what a gap fill sheet can do that is useful for students and then look at what it doesn’t do.

Once we understand the aims of a practice task, we can work towards ways of convincingly meeting them. The rest of the session will give you alternative suggestions and activities that you can select, adapt or create as needed for your own EFL lessons, whether teaching in a face to face or online environment.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
