Effectiveness of play way method for teaching English
The workshop started with a short individual activity in which the teachers were supposed to identify the nouns, verbs and adjectives in the given sentences. The second activity was on building vocabulary in which the teachers used other words for the given adjective. Through these activities Ms. Joseph intended to express how grammar can be taught in a play way method. The workshop then moved on to creative writing. The teachers were shown different pictures and asked to write short poems and compositions. Set of words, phrases and clue words were provided to assist the teacher to write their compositions. These activities were interesting and many teachers came forward to share their poems and stories.
This workshop by Ms. Mini Joseph was a learning experience not only for the English teachers but other too. It was relevant to the topic and well conducted. .
