Activity framework

  • Methodology: MUDs usually present grammar or vocabulary contents, so it's better to insert them into your activity program as an extra activity to do.

There are two possibilities: 1) as a reinforcement worksheet (revising what has been practised in class) 2) as a pre-unit activity (only to test pupils' knowledge).

  • Timing: one session in the computer room.
  • Complementary material: The pupils will need a worksheet which is their work plan and it could be elaborated from two different points of view: one which contains the instructions of the activity (using the computer), and another one which gets into the unit program, practising the contents without using the computer.
