Last week Grade 5 students self-assessed their reading technique as well as expressive reading skills during their Drama class. The learners were exposed to various aspects of expressive reading such as reading with actions, maintaining eye-contact with the audience at appropriate time and voice modulation. These were also the criteria on the basis of which they were assessed.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
The students were expected to prepare for this through the previous week. I was really delighted to notice the efforts put in by the students as well as touched by their honest self-assessment. They displayed a fair amount of willingness to identify and work upon their areas of improvement. The poetry content was selected from Grade 5 Empowering English reader.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
The students are really wanting to improve this skill and hence have committed to practise the same at home. Parents are requested to motivate the learners for the same.
