A GAME FOR ACTIVE LEARNING
Display full text
Select a paragraph of text focused on one discipline key concept /theme for the class.
Delete a selection of individual words /phrases from the passage.
Student groups ‘compete’ to fill in the gaps in the text.
Once first group finishes display full text.
Select key discipline words/phrases rather than non-specific words. It is wise to test your CLOZE passage with a student before running for whole class as it needs to be appropriate to students’ experience and challenging without being inaccessible.
