Peers active observation while presentations.
 
Hello everybody,
 
As a part of assessment, my students (middle school) have to give a 5 minute presentation. What should the other students do to stay active and  to hem then make use of listening to the presentation? How can I assess their engagement? What tasks can they do while listening to their peer?
 
Thank you in advance.

You could ask them to 1.... write down something they found interesting. 2. ... resume the presentation in some sentences 3...correct mistakes 4... ask three questions about the presentation.

Good ideas from Silvia. In my school, they would be asked to peer assess. If you have a marking system, they could use that. Or you could give them things to look out for: good use of adjectives/fluency/powerful verbs/rhetorical devices. But I see you are in a middle school. Maybe they could give marks out of 10 and be prepared to justify their mark.

I always ask 2 or 3 students in the room to make a comment on their schoolmatesī presentation. Iīve made a worksheet to teach them how to do it. (the worksheet is here),   I appoint them after the presentation and they know their comment wiil be assessed and make part of their oral evaluation.
 
Tey should focus on the
1: - Organization
2 - Relevance of the topic (Was it appealing to the audience?)
3 - Variety of  Vocabulary - 
4 - Grammar - correct verb tenses, the use oif connectors...
5 - Fluency and pronunciation 
 
It has worked with me.

Hi !! I love using Graphic Organizers, but if you donīt want to spend money making copies, just ask them to write the following topics about the studentīs presentation:
 
A- MAIN SUBJECT:
B- DETAIL 1:
C- DETAIL 2:
D- DETAIL 3 :
E- CONCLUSION :
 
You may give 2 points for each correct answer. They will keep their attention to the whole presentation.

Before the presentation starts they may write down words they suppose to hear (if they know the topic, of course). Then they listen and tick all the words they guesssed.
