| | Re: Does anyone know some good activities for large classes?
Thank you for sharing so many good ideas. Personally, I just found the huge classes a nightmare. Breaking students into smaller groups, and assigning the more advanced students as group leader helped. Sometimes I also held vocabulary contests between "teams". Write down 25 pairs of opposites. Find 10 words starting with the prefix "dis". Then have students write the answers on the board. You can give points for quality or speed. The basic point is to make the students work together, share their knowledge, and teach each other. You circle around, share tips, and monitor progress.
You can also, as previously mentioned, have them complete surveys.
