      8/8 – much better than in one of the previous tasks with manic monic polynomials :))) 

      The purpose of this activity could be to introduce academic vocabulary useful in various academic disciplines by drawing students’ attention to the collocates of the verb develop that are common in different disciplines such as strategy, theory, skill, etc. 

      The task could be to identify the most common collocates in your area of study then compare with your partner(s) (from a different area of study) to see which ones are common/discipline specific.

      The activity could be developed into concordances with the most common collocates to analyse examples in context.

      I agree with the previous posts that it was a satisfying task because of its interactivity and fun and because of the challenge to see the patterns and the differences behind the similarities.
