The Crazy Professor Reading Game is a reading technique which helps students see meaning in the words they´re reading. Students become active as they move their hands and read dramatically. Honestly, when I saw the video I wished I were in that classroom as a student, learning and having fun w/ them.
The steps are:
- ask sts to read the text aloud to themselves (dramatically).
- sts read again using their hands to represent what they are reading.
- pairs ask questions to each other about the text.
- One st is the crazy professor and the other is the eager student. The teacher really wants to teach (summarize the text) and the student really wants to learn.
