Making Suggestions with How About, Let's and Would You Like To--Running Dictation



[The students are put into pairs and each pair is given an answer sheet. One student to goes outside the classroom to look at the sentences, and the other student writes down the sentence.  The student who looks at the quotes can not write, and the student who writes can not go outside the room to look at the quotes.  The quotes outside the room are written in direct speech, but the students have to change them into reported speech.  Then after the activity is finished, I hand out the answer sheets and have the students check their answers (or have other groups check each other.)  I'm still experimenting with how best to decide a winner.  Sometimes the winner is the first group to finish without mistakes.  In classes where there are no flawless groups, then each correct work is worth one point.In order to fit into blogger, the copy and paste version below is in portrait view, but it works better in landscape view.  See the Google Docs versions above]
