Steve's "To The Limit" Cloze Loaf
Recently in my Beg/Low class I took a lengthy cloze exercise at the end of a chapter and wrote it on the board, leaving blank spaces for the answers. Then I wrote the answers (in this case, HE,SHE,HIS,HER'S, etc) on postits and randomly distributed them to the class. The students' task was to place the postit they received in the correct blank space. The more advanced students went to the board immediately, but within five minutes language was being generated, "lights were going on" and the task was correctly completed in less than ten minutes. This exercise is easily prepared and adaptable to any level or subject. Steve Varalyay, Torrance, CA.
