Listening

I am doing an assignment on listening and for this assignment I must ask other teachers for advice. The assignment is due this Friday 4 October.
I am investigating top down listening and how to promote this within my class.

Top down listening is using background knowledge to understand the text and gaining the gist of the passage.
Bottom up listening is when you investigate the grammar and vocabulary with the students.
I would like to know what activities people use to promote top down listening. Most of the reading I have done focuses on bottom up listening activities.
