This evening, I am doing a presentation for a group of language teachers who have a fantastic opportunity to use a linked up grant and create a set of resources which promote higher order thinking skills in French through the use of authentic video. For my part, I am going to talk to the group about how we set up, assess and debrief powerful learning outcomes which not only look at linguistic progression but also effective learner behaviour. I am going to explore the use of Bigg's SOLO taxonomy to assess understanding and also the challenge of debriefing thinking in the target language. To that end, I have tried to compile a list of thining words in French which can be downloaded and freely adapted. ( Download French metacognitive verbs).
I feel I need to reflect and write at more length on the seperate elements, but fo now, here is the Prezi I am going to use. Hope you enjoy it!
