Kumamoto JALT:

Putting Words in their Mouths: Dictogloss, Shadowing, and Summarizing

Date: Sunday, February 23rd, 2003 Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Speaker: John Small, Kumamoto Gakuen

This presentation will cover three activities that give students structured language practice: dictogloss (grammar dictation), shadow talking, and summarizing. With dictogloss, students actively recreate the spoken text, discuss differences and missing information with partners, and participate in a review of the grammar of individual sentences. Shadow talking and summarizing exercises, which are easy to prepare and paperless, will also be explained. Presentation materials come from the presenter's self-published, non-profit, global issues textbooks.
