DESCRIPTION

The goal of this learning scenario is to enhance learners’ language experiences by engaging them in a variety of listening and oral interaction activities to prepare them to first report crimes and then help authorities to identify suspects. It is authentic in the sense that learners may be exposed to crime, whether in their immediate surroundings or away from home. Therefore, they must communicate the relevant information with regard to the crime in a clear and effective manner. The scenario consists of two learning situations: 1: Reporting a Crime 2: Describing a Crime to a Police Officer

INTENTION PÉDAGOGIQUE

Andragogical Intention SITUATION 1: `Reporting a Crime` - To promote learners’ involvement in the scenario and engage their interest and motivation by having them make links between what they are about to learn and their previous experiences.
