Space it out

Introduction:
This game requires a computer rooms and ideally 1 computer per person or pair.

 

What is learnt?
Punctuation, Syntax, Using computers in English, Clause coordination.


Preparation:
Type into your word processor a text that the group has already read and find fairly hard. Then remove all the punctuation and all the spaces between the words.

 

How the game is played:

  1. You can have up to three students round each computer - ideally you will have one computer per student as most people prefer to word-process on their own, if there is a choice.
  2. Tell the students to space and punctuate the text.
  3. Go round and help with things they can't sort out and explain words they don't know.
