The Present Perfect Tense Peer Teaching


Working with a partner, pupils made brief notes on The Present Perfect Tense in part 1. The same pair should now be ready to make a presentation on this topic to another pair. In return this other pair will also make a presentation (on the same topic) back to them. In this process, all four pupils experience peer teaching and being peer taught thereby creating four “experts”. There is a suggested page of notes included in this part for pupils to check their own notes against before they peer teach this topic to each other.

These four experts then combine the best bits of both of their presentations to create a short video about The Present Perfect Tense. This video will form part of a library of grammar topics to be shared among the class. 



Part 1: The Grammar Lesson – Collaboration

Pupils will work collaboratively in a pair to write brief notes about the grammar topic in this lesson.

Part 2: Creating an ‘Expert’ Group – Peer Teaching

One pair will now work with another pair to teach what they know about the topic to each other – this will develop collaborative learning and peer teaching skills. In addition, a group of four ‘experts’ on this grammar topic has now been created. This expert group of four will now make a short video on the grammar topic and show their video to the rest of the class.

Part 3: Individual Q & A – Self-Assessment

After experiencing collaborative learning and peer teaching of the grammar topic, pupils now need to work on their own to check that their individual understanding of the topic is secure.
