Mayotte Map Talk Retell

Hey y'all,


Just wanted to take a second to share the work of a kid I couldn't be more proud of. For context, the only real homework that I give my students is to do a retell (or sometimes a rewrite) of whatever we did that day. When it's audio/video, I challenge them to only use some bulleted notes, as opposed to reading a script line for line. Either way, the aim is strictly to reinforce their skills and knowledge through a presentational task.


I don't really grade them (or even look at them all that often, to be honest), but I will check them out to give feedback. This year I'm also experimenting with kids using these as samples for a portfolio they'll have to present at the end of the year.


Anyway, here is a 10th grader's retell after we started a Map Talk on Mayotte. This kid has just absolutely blossomed this year, and has taken the proficiency-based thing, mixed with the content-based approach I have and just eaten it all up.


Enjoy!

Moi, je voudrais savoir ce que tu as présenté sur Mayotte our avoir l'idée de ton input avant qu'il fasse son retell. Le seul risque que je vois dans cette activité c'est que les élèves vont lire les notes au lieu de juste parler. Est-ce le cas ici? Peuvent-ils lire les notes? En tout cas c'est impressionnant ce que cet élève a accompli. Bravo!

Ce qui est le plus impressionant c'est son confort avec la langue (et son accent!).
