Using what you’ve learned about speaking step 3, and your own ideas, think about:

Teaching it

For example, how could you model this step? How could students be encouraged to explicitly think about how to put ideas into a logical order?

Reinforcing it

This step is good to practise in the classroom. Although the focus in this step is on speaking, logical ordering of ideas is useful in written work too.
What could you do to reinforce this step? How could students practise?

Assessing it

This step can be assessed through observation of speaking or a structured activity. For example:
What could students talk about or create? How could you test if they can put ideas in a logical order?
