Make listening a highlight


As mentioned in a previous post, listening is often seen as a test.  With this listening, I simply made a multiple choice answer grid and let students highlight the correct answers.  There is something very unthreatening about a highlighter.  The students approached this as a normal lesson activity (which it was!) rather than a test.  Having the words correctly on the sheet means the answers from the listening can become a writing activity, e.g. write about these people using the third person.  It is easy to differentiate by providing more or fewer alternatives for students.

    This post and the previous one bring simple nice ideas. I'll try them out.
    Thanks for sharing.
