    • Secondary school English classes usually involve a combination of formal teaching and individual and group activities to reinforce content. This can be an effective routine, but it is useful to surprise students occasionally by using a different teaching style.
      Although traditionally more popular in elementary grades, classroom centres or stations can provide enjoyable and educational learning experiences for secondary students and foster skill development in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The introduction of a unit using centres is a simple way to incorporate authentic language into your program. In addition, a centres unit helps to increase student engagement and adds variety to the classroom routine. This presentation explains how to design an enrichment unit using centres. Topics discussed during the presentation include pre-teaching, content creation, student grouping, and assessment practices. Ideas for games, activities, and assignments for use in each centre are suggested.
