US26625 Speaking - Group Problem-Solving - Work It
This task helps students achieve NZQA’s Unit Standard 26625 Actively Participate in Spoken Interactions - version 6. For this standard, students are required to participate in THREE different interactions (at least one of which must be in a small group). This resource covers ONE of those – speaking interactively in a group situation.
Students are told how many companies like to observe candidates in a group work scenario before they decide who to employ. This is their scenario – each group member is vying for the job by showing how well they can interact. They first learn basic tools that help them participate actively in a group discussion. They then pre-plan a camping trip individually, later taking their ideas to a group discussion with the goal of coming to a consensus about where the group should go camping, meal plans, what to take, and how they will get there.
As with all our task booklets, this resource:
- Comes with a clear and user-friendly coversheet.
- Is available in Microsoft Word and Google Doc formats - use it as is or edit it to suit your/your students' needs.
- Is available in a type-on PDF format. No editing, but nor do you have to worry about format.
- Is primarily designed to be shared with students digitally but can also be printed.
- Is designed to ensure students SUCCEED.
- Includes tables and templates, providing a structured and scaffolded approach.
- Contains hyperlinks (where necessary) for easy referral to parts within the document and also to external web sources.
- Includes short breaks when students can watch YouTube clips about daring or interesting things … then it’s back into it!
