EXPLOITING THE MATERIALS IN THE MODULAR APPROACH
It is suggested that for the low achievers, pupils should be given the opportunity to be engaged with the language as much as possible. One of the suggestions is to exploit the use of the same content or material for the 4 skills. The aim is to enable pupils to look at the words, use them in different contexts, understand the words and be able to comprehend meaning. Teachers are recommended to integrate Fun Learning elements in their lessons such as integration of new technologies i.e Padlet, VLE-Frog and Language Games to arouse pupils’ interests. Teachers may include the use of various 21st Century Learning activities and thinking tools such as the i-Think maps.
