Reward Resource Pack Revival: Intermediate (B1/B2) - Communicative activities for learners of English

by Kay, Sue Published by ELT Teacher 2 Writer

Published 2023.

The original Reward Resource Packs were written by Sue Kay in the mid-1990s when she was teaching full time. They were popular with teachers all around the world because they were easy to use and worked well in the classroom. Sue and ELT Teacher 2 Writer took on the challenge of updating them for today's classroom without taking out the fun or losing the original character which made them so popular at the end of the last century.

Key Features:-

This list of key features taken from the original cover are still true for Reward Resource Pack Revival:

Lively and stimulating classroom activities

Ready-made lessons with step-by-step instructions for teachers

Quick and easy to use

Provide practice mainly in speaking, but also reading and writing

Updates: -

The updates we've made to Reward Resource Packs Revival reflect the developments in ELT over the intervening period:

Increased use of authentic material. In the 90s there was no internet for finding authentic material online.

Attention to word frequency and CEFR level. Corpus-informed dictionaries didn't become mainstream until the early 2000s.

Importance of DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion). A flick through any coursebook of that era shows that there was room for improvement.

Emergence of ELF (English as a Lingua Franca). In the 90s it was assumed that students wanted to visit an English-speaking country, sound like a native speaker or learn about UK/US culture.

We didn't need to make changes to:

Activity types based on personalised responses.

The communicative formats which are as relevant and as generative in the classroom now as they were in the 90s: pairwork, groupwork, class mingles, information-gap, board games, quizzes, etc.
