Try This Strategy!

Listen, Write, Correct

This is a great strategy to help students listen and practice specific concepts you’ve taught them. First, choose a text excerpt that includes the language element that will be the focus of instruction. Read that text aloud and have students write what they hear (read the text multiple times). Review the concepts or language elements and help students correct what they wrote. To download a teacher planner and texts to help you with this strategy, log into Ellevation and then click here to go straight to the strategy. [,-write,-correct]
