|Judul||:||TEAM-WORD WEB FOR YOUNG LEARNERS’ SOCIAL AND PRODUCTIVE SKILLS|
Encouraging and engaging children in language learning need very high efforts as they develop very quickly, have a short attention span and so need variety. The choice of topics is important, but it should be built on and extended so that the learners can learn something new. The learning process should also be fun, but it should have a purpose or a goal, and that have an end-product that the learners can feel proud of. Positive environment should be created by teachers, since young language learners need to feel successful when using English, have plenty of opportunities to communicate especially with their classmates, and make them know they have achieved something worthwhile. Any techniques will do if they are appropriate with the characteristics of the young language learners. Team-Word Web in Cooperative Learning is one of the techniques which gives an opportunity for young learners to work in groups, and build their social skill. Moreover, it also facilitates them in achieving their productive skills because this technique focuses more on speaking and writing ability.
