Self-Correcting Dictations.
Gex, Judith Coppock
Procedures for five English-as-a-Second-Language dictation exercises designed to enhance students' ability to self-correct are described, and suggested texts are presented. The self-correcting dictations allow students to practice their listening, gain instant feedback, and have practical information in hard form quickly. They also reduce the teacher's correction load. The dictation ideas include: a dictation read four times, with written assistance given on the first reading; a slotted or cloze dictation; peer dictation; an exercise having a small group of students reconstruct a brief passage read twice; and student construction of a dictation for others. Notes from an article on procedures for dicto-comps are also reproduced. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
