This idea follows on from a previous post on how to use Post-its in the class and I’m going to try it in an input session this afternoon.
I always find it difficult to position the sentences in a running dictation so that they can’t be easily read from people’s seats, so buy writing them on the sticky side of Post-it notes, you ensure thyat students have to get out of their seats and physically lift the Post-it to read what’s on the back.
I’m going to do a running dictation in my session this afternoon partly to show the trainees how the activity works and also as both a revision and engage activity. I have eight questions written on the Post-its: four of them are a review of what we learnt last session and the other four are questions which they will be able to answer by the end of the session. Also, as it will be 6 o’clock on a Friday afternoon in Cádiz, in August, with the Levante wind blowing through, I think it will be nice to do something to energise them for the last hour of Week 2.
