(Quote) Jason Renshaw: “I first came across the “dictogloss” in the early noughties when I was researching ways to facilitate more focus on form for learners I was teaching in a content-based/immersion-style curriculum (if you’re in Europe, think CLIL). I came across a great article by Merrill Swain on the topic and application, and after initially wondering whether it was about glossy dinosaurs or dictation performed on glossy paper, realised it would be a great method to use in my classroom.
I became so impressed with it, in fact, that by the mid-noughties I was featuring dictogloss as a regular weekly activity in the in-house curriculum and course materials I was responsible for maintaining in a school with close to one thousand learners. The results have always been impressive.” (English Raven – Click on the link below for free downloadable Dictogloss resources)
