News headlines - Instant feedback to support the practise of the passive/past participleUploaded by Sanderin van Hazebrouck, Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg (Germany)
This clip shows a group of intermediate learners who practise using the passive/past participle by making news headlines. The IWB flipchart was prepared to give feedback to the learners. By clicking the yellow star, the important facts of the headline was given, e.g. Will Smith – to see – city centre. The learners were then asked to use the past participle to create a news headline in a passive form.
Previously, they have matched halves of news headlines and have discussed how news headlines are created and which form they have to focus on. Later on, they will have the chance to create their own news and present those to the class.

Here it is really great that they can check their answers immediately with the red star, so they see what was wrong and what was right. That's really nice. And the background. It's always motivating to see this.
Also wir haben geübt nochmal diese Form mit dem past participle und haben dazu Übungen gemacht wo wir dann Sätze bilden mussten und das dann auch überprüfen konnten.
We have practised the past participle and we had to build sentences and we could check them on the board
Also mir hat das am besten gefallen wo wir das mit den Sternen gemacht haben, wo man erst die Sätze bilden musste und es dann auch überprüfen konnte. Ich fand das eben schön, weil man es eben dann anklicken konnte und dann so überprüfen. Bei manchen Sachen wo was falsch gestanden war kann man es ja auch markieren und umschieben. Das ist ja dann viel leichter.
I like the exercise with the stars or suns, where you had to form sentences and check directly. I think that was nice, since you could directly click and check. And even if you got it wrong you could have used the highligher or move it around. That's a lot easier.
