A common area of difficulty for newly qualified teachers (and those with lots of experience!) is making sure that students really understand what they are supposed to be doing and really understand new language points.
The tendency is to rely on questions like “Is that clear?” or “Do you understand?”, which may seem effective but in fact tell us nothing of use at all.
This session reviews the use of ICQs (instruction checking questions) and CCQs (concept checking questions) and offers insights into how to craft these successfully. It also looks at some of the other ways we can use to check student understanding such as timelines and gesture so that by the session end, participants feel much more confident in this area and have a clear point of reference to optimise learner clarity.
