3 versions of a paragraph of text.
(Each version has more words missing.)
How It Works:
Share with students a paragraph of text. This can be displayed or read out loud
Then display/read out the same paragraph but with key words missing/not said
The final challenge display/read the text with lots of words missing/not said.
Students have to recreate the paragraph- by either filling in the gaps or re-writing the whole paragraph
They are not allowed to write when your display/read the text the first time.
You should not slow down your reading/increase the display time-
Students are learning to pick out key elements of a text- along with learning how to write notes.
Students can work in pairs/groups- only writing particular types of words? e.g- Nouns, verbs, etc…
