Feedback shortcuts for assessing writing

Here is a set of comments I use frequently when giving feedback to students. It's designed for EFL writers with an English level equivalent to IELTS 5.5 or above. The links are to sites I regularly use in teaching, and the recommended books are available in my university library. Feel free to adapt according to your students' level, needs and available resources. There are different ways you could exploit the comments set: 1. (on paper) as a cover sheet when returning written work. 2. (in Microsoft Word) as the basis for creating AutoText entries, which you can quickly insert into Comments when reviewing electronic copies of your students' work. 3. (in Turnitin) as the basis for creating a QuickMark set in GradeMark. I've appended the .qms file so if you're already a Grademark user you can download then import it into your own Quickmark library and modify as appropriate.

Vivre en Aquitaine

Vivre en Aquitaine, a website for learners of French developed by the Institut Français in Madrid, the Open University in the UK, the Institut Français in Bremen, Germany, the University of Genoa and the Institut Français in Milan, Italy. Aimed at learners of French (levels B1-B2 of the CEFR), it includes resources and activities that develop their language skills, cultural knowledge and intercultural awareness, whilst also promoting the Aquitaine region and culture to potential new visitors. The pedagogical objectives are: · Practical objectives: discovering Aquitaine, its culture, its history, its ways of life and its customs, and finding out useful practical information for those wanting to settle in the area. · Intercultural objectives : adopting an open and curious outlook, relativising one’s point of view and values; · Linguistic objectives: reading, listening to and understanding complex texts and recordings in French, knowing how to react to situations in everyday life, etc · Personal objectives: improving one’s French in an autonomous way by identifying one’s language needs, and to carry out research and select information relevant to one’s needs and interests

Wohin mit dem ‘nicht’?

Two short exercises to practice negation. Typically where to place –nicht- in a German sentence requires a certain amount of practice for students, especially when a sentence contains –nicht- more than once. Using –kein- with correct declination is also often problematic. The English sentences give practice and a guide to the meaning of –kein-at the same time. This sheet can be used for individual practice or pair work. Discussion of grammatical knowledge amongst students is valuable in this area, as fellow learners can share aide memoires and explain in ways not necessarily obvious to native speaker tutors.

die Aussprache von u und ü

This pronunciation aid is best used in face-to-face teaching of more advanced groups, as vocabulary is somewhat advanced. The pronunciation of the difference between ‘u’ and ‘ü’ presents many learners with difficulties. This sheet uses 12 sentences for practice of the two sounds. It is important that student first learn to hear the difference before reproducing the sound. The sentences used are deliberately nonsensical to add an element of fun. Students can be invited to make up their own sentences to challenge their partner’s pronunciation prowess in pair work.

die deutschen Bundeslaender

This exercise is to emphasise Germany as a federal state as opposed to a nation state such as England. The map of Germany is divided into Bundelaender old and new, some more, some less familiar to students. Filling in the map is best done as a tutorial pair work or small group exercise. An extension to this exercise are the flags of each Bundesland. Here some historical and geographical knowledge is useful, for example the Brandenburg eagle or Niedersachsen horse. The flags are important to German regional identity and dialect. These exercises especially lend themselves to an excursion into Landeskunde with more advanced students. Students should be invited to bring in their own experiences of Germany and German culture.

heiteres Beruferaten

This is a tried and tested ice breaker activity for face-to-face tutorials. It fits into the topic of ‘Berufe’ and ‘Welt der Arbeit’ but can be adapted to fit any category (eg. celebrities, characters from novels, or people from history). Prepare cut slips of paper (one per student), hand these out so each student can only see their slip. Make sure students understand what their given ‘Beruf’ is. One candidate begins, the rest are the panel. The student in the ‘hot seat’ may only answer questions with ‘ja’ or ‘nein’, although ‘manchmal’, ‘immer’, ‘nie’ etc can also be encouraged. Goal of the game is to guess the job with as few questions as possible, although in this context the more target language is used the better. Tutors are part of the panel and can move the game along. The ‘Berufe’ chosen are deliberately glamorous and /or unusual to add an element of fun. These can be adapted to suit your group of students.

nützliche Ausdrücke für Diskussionen

A sheet of useful expressions for group discussions. This can be used for prepping students for their oral assessment during tutorials or simply as a resource for students to work with in their own time. Goal is to provide students with vocabulary that will make any group discussion flow better and more naturally.

sich vorstellen

A warm up pair work activity for first face-to-face tutorials. Gives students structured questions to ask their partner. Goal is to report back to the group in third person singular. More advanced students should be encouraged to move away from these set questions and create their own. The last question ‘Was fällt dir spontan ein, wenn du an Deutschland denkst?‘ is deliberately open to encourage discussion.
