Pronouncing '-ed' words

Pronunciation for English Language Learners

ARTICULATE RISE 360

Overview

This is a simple, fun and memorable module that helps English language learners with a very common area of difficulty: how to pronounce words that end in '-ed' correctly. As always I took a systematic approach in designing the module, in this case applying

principles and strategies from Bloom's Taxonomy  (in particular

activities to listen, copy, repeat, memorise, find, categorise and match), as well as Gagne's nine-step model  (including informing the learner of objectives, stimulating recall of prior knowledge, presenting clear rules, providing guidance, and eliciting and assessing performance).

 

Learners, therefore, have the opportunity to practice listening, mimic pronunciation, learn a simple and (in my experience) very effective rule, and begin to put it into practice. Adding to the module's utility is the fact that Rise 360 courses have a tiny footprint, can be published on LMS or standard website, and adapt seamlessly to any device.
