Document Cameras

One way document cameras can be used in the ESL classroom is by having the student show and present their work to the class.

For the grades 9 to 10 class, they presented their projects about idioms. Each student was assigned an idiom, and they drew a picture of the literal meaning, then a picture of the actual meaning and wrote a sentence. They presented their project by showing it to the class with the document camera, describing their pictures and reading theiy sentences they wrote. The class then discussed each project.

Speaking, listening, writing and reading skills were all devleoped in this exercise.
