Title: Using role-play with less able pupils in geography
Authors: Loh, Grace

Abstract: Many teachers have voiced their frustration in trying to teach academic geography courses to their less able pupils. Such
pupils appear to be lacking in basic skills of reading, writing and numeracy. Their poor concentration span and limited retention
of information have made it difficult for teachers to arouse their interest or stimulate sustained efforts (Pick and Renwick, 1984).
The prevalent forms of expository teaching found in most classrooms do not meet the need of less able pupils for variety.
'Variety' is the keyword when teaching less able pupils - variety of resources, teaching strategies, content, tasks, locations and
in class organisation. The example of the role play described in this article is an attempt to provide classroom teachers with a
teaching strategy that will break the monotony of expository teaching.
