EC WORKSHOP

A WORKSHOP ON "EC AS A LIFESKILL" WITH A VISION: LEARNING TO THINK IN ENGLISH...by understanding the EC pattern in an easy way!

REQUIREMENTS: A good classroom with a board and chalk/pen

TIME NEEDED: 3 hours

HOW TO TAKE.....DETAILS:

First a question to the audience: What is communication?
In a simple way we can say...it is sharing information or exchange of information.

So now a question: What is an "information"?
It is of four types: STATE, POSSESSION, ACTION and REALITY.
It is also about three time zones: PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE.
So a sentence tells us two things: Type of info and time of info.

Now what is a speech: A collection of statements.
What is an interaction: Asking questions: Yes/No and Wh-questions.

Let us first discuss STATE:
1. I am happy.
2. I was happy.    (Using humour : Ask the participants "when?")
3. I will be happy. (Sprinkling humour : Ask the participants "when?")
4. I have been happy for most of the days in 2012.
(Tell the students about the importance of the word "I")

Next : Yes/No questions and Wh-questions for eg.questions with "Who"

Now let us talk about POSSESSION:
1. You have a good smile.  (Using humour: Ask a participant to smile!)
2. You had a good smile in childhood.  (Using humour: Ask a participant to smile!)
3. You will have a good smile after using this toothpaste.  (Using humour: Ask a participant to smile!)

Next : Yes/No questions and Wh-questions for eg.questions with "Who"

Now let's face REALITY:
1. There are nine people here.
2. There were eight people here.
3. There will be more people here tomrrow as it is a holiday.

Next : Yes/No questions and Wh-questions for eg.questions with "Who"

Now it's time for ACTION:
1. I use a dictionary everyday.
2. I like DC.
3. We are watching Jeevan news tonight.
4. He is listening to cricket commentary on radio.
5. I have talked to a tourist.
6. I have been writing a diary since 2000.
7. I read an interview of Hrithik yesterday.
8. I was reading it in Fimfare.
9. I will speak in English tomorrow.
10. I will be speaking to a Customer Care Executive.

Next : Yes/No questions and Wh-questions for eg.questions with "Who"

PASSIVE VOICE
1. Many people read RD......RD is read by many people.
2. I am reading "Two States" now......Two States is being read by me.
3. We discussed politics yesterday......Politics was discussed by us yesterday.
4. They were presenting a seminar......A seminar was being presented by them.
5. He will do a workshop tomorrow.......A workshop will be done by him.
6. He has given a speech on "Good Health"......A speech on good health has been given by him.

Next : Yes/No questions and Wh-questions for eg.questions with "Who"

MODAL VERBS
Can/Shall/Could/May I sit here?
Would you mind if I sit here?

So in all we have seen a total of 10+10+6+1=27 types of sentences which are the most common in EC.

Games played during the workshop by the participants:
1. Describing the person/Yes-No question game.
2. Combination game.
3.A life story in keywords.

Hope that this article gives you a SPARK to learn/teach EC.

15 EC TASKS FOR EC PARTICIPANTS


1.  The COMBINATION Game


(This game measures the ability of the students to ask questions according to the rules of English also called "the sentence logic")
PURPOSE OF THE GAME: English communication is all about making the right combinations ie., we need to combine the right verb with the key words to either ask a question or to talk about something.
HOW TO PLAY: 
The teacher first writes some verbs(which are used for making questions) and asks one member from one of the teams to write key words for combining with the verbs already given.  An example is given below:
Do(supporting verb written by the teacher) + book(a key word written by a team member)
Similarly:
Are + class
Is + friend
Will + food
Does + bus
Now the other team has to combine both the words ie., supporting verb and key word to make a question.  For eg.
Do you like this book?
In which class are you studying?
Who is you best friend?
Will you eat your food with me?
Does this bus go to city?
If a question has both the words(verb and key word) combined properly following the English rules then one mark can be given to the team whose member asked the right question.  Now let all members of that team ask questions using the remaining combination of "verb and key word" in the right way as given above. For every right question asked by the team members one mark can be given.
After one round the teacher can change the verbs with new ones like:
Have(supporting verb written by the teacher) + sky(a key word written by a team member) 
Was + teacher
Did + father
Were + mother
Has + brother
Now the other team has to combine both the words ie., supporting verb and key word to make a question.  For eg.
Have you a seen a clear sky this week?
Which chapter was the teacher taking?
Where did your father go yesterday?
Were you talking to your mother just now?
Has your brother got admission?
In the last round the teacher can give modal verbs to combine with the key words written by one of the team members:
May (supporting verb written by the teacher) + games(a key word written by a team member)
Would + tea
Shall + trees
Should + cycle
Can + bag
Now the other team has to combine both the words ie., supporting verb and key word to make a question.  For eg.
May I play games?
Would you like to have a cup of tea with me?
Shall we go near the trees?
Should I bring my cycle?
Can you hold this bag?

2. The "DESCRIBING A PERSON" Game 

(This game measures the ability of the students to ask questions in order to get information about a person and also to "better their describing a person" skills.)
PURPOSE OF THE GAME: Asking " yes/no questions " about a person and also learning to describe people by their physical appearance.
HOW TO PLAY:
 A member from a team comes to the front and asks the opposite team to guess a person's name (whose name will be written on a sheet of paper and shown only to the speaker) by asking only three Yes/No questions. Now this team member or speaker  will say only "Yes" or "No" to the questions asked by the other team about the mysterious person. 
For eg. Is the person male? and the answer may be "No"
             Is she tall? Ans. "Yes"
             Is she very active? Ans. "No"
After three "yes/no questions" have been asked,  the speaker will give a one line description of the mysterious person and this one line description should be about his/her physical appearance only. For eg.
            She is wearing a red dresss today.
Now the opposite team will again ask two more "yes/no" questions and then try to guess the name of the mysterious person.  If they succeed they can be given one mark. But there is one condition ie., the name of the mysterious person can be said only once.  So the team guessing the name should say it only when they are very sure of its accuracy possibly after asking all their "yes/no" questions.

3. A ROLE PLAY - A TEAM IN A CRISIS

EC Presentations

  Conversational Skills Enhancement Exercise

Activities:
1. Divide the class into teams of say about 5-6 participants.
2. Then each of them has to make an individual speech on the given topic for one minute.
3. After that they have to interact with the audience by asking thought provoking questions thus inviting ideas and suggestions to the related issues.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NAME OF THE EXERCISE: CREATIVE PRESENTATION

OBJECTIVE OF THE EXERCISE
To give an opportunity to EC students to try and experiment with different styles/strategies of communication.
Number of students participated: 35
Number of teams: 6
Members in a team:4-5
STEPS INVOLVED
1.Dividing the students into teams of 4-5 members.
2.Asking the students to give a speech about a famous movie which became a classic/ a success story.  The speech will be given by a team member chosen by the team. The speaker should not use in the speech any kind of proper nouns ie., names of people, places, characters, the exact time or year of release of the movie etc.  All the teams will be given a time of say 15-20 minutes to prepare the movie speech and help their respective speakers to deliver the speech in an effective and enchanting manner.
3.While speaking, the speaker should imagine that he/she is talking about the movie to media persons as a part of a media campaign to promote the film among the TV viewers before its official release. So the speech is made at that point of time when the movie is not released yet for the public and so its future is still unknown. 
The movies students chose for giving the speech were:
Titanic
Pather Pancholi
Classmates
Manichithrathazha
Pappeyude Swantham Appus
Roja
Tare Zameen Par
After the speeches there was an interactive session. All the speakers were seated facing the audience and were asked a few questions about some aspects of the movies which needed more clarification.
One of the most impressive team performances seen during this exercise was the speech presentation for the movie "Classmates". 
It went like this:
Friends...I want all of you to close your eyes for a while....yes that's it...thank you.
Now let us travel back in time to those nostalgic days when we were in college....the dreams in our eyes....the desires in our hearts...the fire in our minds...how much we lived and enjoyed every bit of the campus...sharing our joys and sorrows...those moments of togetherness, break ups and then making up..."nothing was impossible' days.
...OK let's come back....you can open your eyes....thank you.
This is what new movie tries to do....it makes you think about those unforgettable days spent with our friends and teachers. It evokes nostalgic memories. It makes you sing and dance again....and again....and again.....(song heard in the background : lalala lala...lalalalala...lalalalala.....)

EC - VOICE OF THE VOICELESS

I am fed up.....Please help me.

What happened? What's the issue? You can tell me...
My bosses don't understand my feelings.  I do all the work and still they don't respect my  role in the organisation. They ignore me completely whenever I do any good work but never fail to raise their voice when things go wrong even when it's not my fault. Life has become a never ending nightmare. I am dying to put an end to this.
Tell me frankly...what do you want to happen in your life?
I want people to recognize my feelings and emotions. After all I am also a human being.  I too need to be given importance for what I do.
Yes definitely...but then why should others change....I mean they are all very happy and profiting with your behaviour ....your state of being voiceless...in fact I would say that what you are  wishing now may never happen....So it is you who should be able to change....otherwise you will live in this state of being unheard, unrewarded, unrepresented forever.....
It is easy to say all these but changing a person's inherent nature is practically impossible...I have tried that many a time and I keep coming back to my old state.... 
At least now understand this truth plainly and clearly, till now you were using every moment of your life, every occasion, big or small, to suppress your own voice or to put it more appropriately, making it more acceptable to others; now you need to make it more acceptable to your "own" self...you need to take a U-turn. Are you ready?
I will try my best.
No, you are not going to try...you are going to LIVE every moment of your life to find happiness in the present and not DIE every moment of your life thinking that you will find happiness in future. The choice is entirely yours to make: LIVE for a change, not DIE thinking that things will change for better...and remember ...if you keep on delaying this change...soon you will have absolutely NO CHOICE but to CHANGE.
No...not any more....this time I am going to CHANGE...I mean LIVE for a CHANGE...and I thank you for all this time and talk...I will become THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE IN THIS WORLD...









  

Reading: Why is it so important?

Reading is an ability to decode the text; it also involves thinking skills like imagining,guessing, analysing, questioning, inferring and concluding. Reading is actually seeing the unseen, hearing the unsaid and experiencing something without undergoing the actual experience.
To read faster we need to read not word by word but phrase by phrase.  Phrases are a set of words having an idea or a food for thought. Words like "a, the, was" have no ideas in them. So we need to read them along with the keywords. For eg."The train is coming." Here "The train" and "is coming" should be read together, as a phrase, to make the mind imagine the situation described.
Similarly you can read in a non-linear fashion also if the text is difficult to follow in a linear way. For this we need to find the core idea first or the nucleus of the whole information.
Scanning and skimming are the two sub-skills of reading. Scanning means tracking down an information and skimming means to get to the main idea(s) and leave the unimportant ones.
So in short reading is all about exercising your conscious thinking skills. It involves mental labour. The visual media like TV, Internet utilities like Facebook, YouTube stimulate the sub-conscious mind which actually doesn't know how to think. It acts on instincts. So we should devote more time to textual reading than visual reading if we want to upgrade our thinking skills to higher levels.

EC - Insights !

Just follow this conversation:

You look a bit upset, what happened?

I had gone to attend my friend's wedding....I arrived there two days before and did my best in arranging all things there but once the wedding got over he completely ignored me. He didn't even acknowledge my services. I was shattered.
 
I can understand. It's OK.

What OK? While leaving the place he didn't even give a shake-hand.
 
I think you are playing the same clip again and again.....break that pattern.

 
But how?

Didn't others say good things to you?
 
Yeah..a lot of people there made me happy and gave me very good memories but I am getting bothered by the last part...why didn't he say Goodbye....I was completely cold shouldered...

Now it is you who is ignoring all the good things and running after that one wrong thing....pardon me for saying this but it's simply ungrateful of you not to be happy about all the happiness around you.
 
Yes I am realising where I am going a bit off the track(unable to hide a smile)...give me some more time...I will be OK.

(smiling).........I will see you later...

The four P's we have .....Present Actions, Present Possessions, Present State and Perceptions are our first and the best resources.  So let's manage them well... happily and wisely.

Yes definitely...but then why should others change....I mean they are all very happy and profiting with your behaviour ....your state of being voiceless...in fact I would say that what you are  wishing now may never happen....So it is you who should be able to change....otherwise you will live in this state of being unheard, unrewarded, unrepresented forever.....
It is easy to say all these but changing a person's inherent nature is practically impossible...I have tried that many a time and I keep coming back to my old state.... 
At least now understand this truth plainly and clearly, till now you were using every moment of your life, every occasion, big or small, to suppress your own voice or to put it more appropriately, making it more acceptable to others; now you need to make it more acceptable to your "own" self...you need to take a U-turn. Are you ready?
I will try my best.
No, you are not going to try...you are going to LIVE every moment of your life to find happiness in the present and not DIE every moment of your life thinking that you will find happiness in future. The choice is entirely yours to make: LIVE for a change, not DIE thinking that things will change for better...and remember ...if you keep on delaying this change...soon you will have absolutely NO CHOICE but to CHANGE.
No...not any more....this time I am going to CHANGE...I mean LIVE for a CHANGE...and I thank you for all this time and talk...I will become THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE IN THIS WORLD...

Remember, you won't offend people if you stick to communicating your feelings, as opposed to telling others what they should or should not do!
The formula for assertive communication is a strategy like this:
I feel "hurt/disappointed" when you "don't value my work" because "it makes me feel like being exploited (or used)". I need to "be properly (and formally/officially) acknowledged and recognised for the work I am doing here."

Here first you mention how you feel when some injustice is done to you and then you state why you feel so. And finally you tell the other persons in clear terms as to how you want them to treat you. 

This formula works a high percentage of time and it gives you a better tool to deal with situations than anger which rarely achieves the desired results. Your tone during voicing your displeasure should convey sincerity, clarity, genuiness and respect towards the other and his/her opinions.
