EFL COURSE EVALUATION: SPEAKING AND LISTENING Group Discussion Project (20%) Beginning in the second session, students will be expected to lead a class discussion based on the weekly theme provided. It is recommended that the discussion be based on some kind of listening media (television show, movie clips, podcast, etc). The main purpose of this exercise is to effectively facilitate an engaging discussion while ensuring the participation of all class members. Students must submit an outline of discussion ideas to the instructor before the facilitation begins. Discussions are encouraged to be approached in a creative manner (e.g. - role play, debate, jigsaw activity, etc). The point is to give students an opportunity to practice their speaking and listening skills.

EFL COURSE EVALUATION: SPEAKING AND LISTENING Participation Points (20%) Students will be responsible for keeping a tally of their participation points. Every class, the student is responsible for filling out the chart below. At the end of each session, this table is handed in for evaluation. Methods of participation include: coming to class prepared, on time, speaking as much as possible in a positive manner, contributing to group discussion, listening to each other, and paying attention in class. 10 PARTICIPATION POINTS A student receiving a 10 comes to class prepared; contributes readily to the conversation but doesn’t dominate it; makes thoughtful contributions that advance the conversation; shows interest in and respect for others’ views; participates actively in small groups. 8 PARTICIPATION POINTS Comes to class prepared and makes thoughtful comments when called upon, contributes occasionally without prompting: shows interest in and respect for others’ views; participates actively in small groups. A score of 8 may also be appropriate to an active participant whose contributions are less developed or cogent than those of a 10 but still advance the conversation. 6 PARTICIPATION POINTS A student receiving a 6 participates in discussion, but in a problematic way. Such students may talk too much, make rambling or tangential contributions, continually interrupt the instructor with digressive questions, bluff their way when unprepared, or otherwise dominate discussions, not acknowledging cues of annoyance from instructor or students.

4 PARTICIPATION POINTS A student receiving a 4 comes to class prepared, but does not voluntarily contribute to discussions and gives only minimal answers when called upon. Nevertheless these students show interest in the discussion, listen attentively, and take notes. Students in this category may be shy or introverted. They may participate fully in small group discussions. They should work toward making progress in overcoming shyness as the course progresses. 2 PARTICIPATION POINTS Students in this range often seem on the margins of the class and may have a negative effect on the participation of others. Students receiving a 2 often don’t participate because they haven’t read the material or done the homework. Students receiving a 1 may be actually disruptive, radiating negative energy via hostile or bored body language, or be overtly rude.
