Open Your CLOZEd Minds: Using Cloze Exercises to Teach Foreign Language Reading.
Meyer, Renee; Tetrault, Emery
Foreign Language Annals, v19 n5 p409-15 Oct 1986
Cloze-like exercises are effective and integrative tasks that allow students to operate meaningfully on authentic foreign language materials. Examples are presented of several exercises, including: predicting content from fragments, focusing on syntactic (rather than lexical or semantic) issues, and restoring deleted markers of function and relationship. Sample cloze exercises are appended. (Author/CB)
