Teacher’s Teaching Techniques and Methods for “Speaking Skills” in “Language Class” for Teaching at class 9 implementing “Multiple Intelligence” Approach

When teaching speaking skills in a language class for ninth-grade students and implementing the Multiple Intelligence approach, it’s important to incorporate a variety of teaching techniques and methods that cater to different intelligence.


Here are some techniques and methods we can use:

Role-Play and Drama:

We can assign role-play activities where students act out various scenarios, such as job interviews, debates, or everyday conversations.

Teacher encourages students to create and perform short skits or dramatic scenes that require them to use the target language effectively.

Interactive Discussions:

Teacher engages students in whole-class or small-group discussions on a variety of topics to encourage oral communication and critical thinking.

We provide prompts or debate topics that spark students’ interest and encourage them to express their opinions and support their arguments.

Collaborative Projects:

Teacher assigns group projects that require students to collaborate and communicate in order to complete a task, such as preparing and presenting a multimedia presentation or organizing a class event.

Teacher encourages students to divide roles and responsibilities, discuss ideas, and present their work to the class.

Storytelling and Presentations:

Have students tell stories or give presentations on topics of interest, allowing them to develop their storytelling skills and practice speaking in front of an audience.

We can incorporate visual aids or multimedia elements to enhance the presentations and engage visual and auditory learners.


Debate and Persuasion:

Teacher organizes debates on controversial topics, where students can practice presenting arguments, countering opposing viewpoints, and developing persuasive speaking skills.

We can teach students effective persuasion techniques, such as using rhetorical devices, logical reasoning, and emotional appeals, to make their arguments more compelling.

Oral Exams and Interviews:

We can conduct individual oral exams or interviews where students can demonstrate their speaking skills and ability to express themselves fluently and accurately.

Teacher provides feedback on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary usage, and overall coherence and fluency.

Multimedia and Technology:

We can use audio and video recordings of authentic conversations, interviews, or speeches to expose students to natural spoken language and different accents.

We can incorporate language-learning apps, online platforms, or interactive language-learning websites that provide speaking practice and feedback.

Reflective Journals and Self-Assessment:

We encourage students to keep reflective journals where they can record their speaking experiences, challenges, and progress.

Teacher provides self-assessment tools or checklists that help students evaluate their own speaking skills and set goals for improvement.

Teacher creates a supportive and inclusive classroom environment where all students feel comfortable expressing themselves in the target language. English language teacher provides ample opportunities for practice, feedback, and reflection. Teacher can integrate a range of teaching techniques and methods that cater to multiple intelligence. We can promote students’ speaking skills development and their overall language proficiency.
