Guided Discovery
Do you want to increase your learners’ engagement with grammar teaching? Guided Discovery is a great technique for presenting language (especially grammar) and if this is a new term for you, this video will talk you through it.

Guided Discovery makes grammar teaching into a puzzle for learners to solve. Rather than telling them the rules and asking them to come up with examples, you give them examples and ask them to work out the rules. It’s particularly good with language where the meaning is pretty straightforward but the form is tricky - things like tag questions, comparatives and superlatives and articles.

Try it out and see how your learners like it.
