Using Animated Lectures To Improve Listening Skills.
Head, Mary K.
Suggestions are offered on the use of animated lectures on CD-ROM into the curriculum of an upper-intermediate-level course in English-as-a-second-language speaking and listening. The technique is recommended as a means of sharpening student listening skills and preparing students for real-life lectures in college. Animated lectures were drawn from the "Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia" for this purpose, but additional sources are cited. Guidelines for classroom presentation of the lectures and related class activities begin with the first lecture and become progressively more advanced for the second, third, and fourth lectures. Lecture five and subsequent lessons are considered optional, depending on the ability of the student to work independently. The activities teach note-taking, outlining, and question-predicting skills. Some testing techniques are also offered. (Contains 17 references.) (MSE)
