SDU, Philology Department
Writing is controlled when the outcome is totally predictable. Advantages: It is either right or wrong so it can be easily corrected. Every student works at his own pace. Disadvantages: Predictability and lack of original expression. The classroom is not the appropriate place for time-consuming exercises.

It was only (5 am/5 pm). In another hour (he/she) would be able to (watch the breakfast show/go back to bed/telephone the doctor). (Still/Yet/Now), there was no reason why (he/she) (wouldn’t/shouldn’t/won’t) make a nice cup of tea. (Sitting up/Getting out of bed), the old lady … etc.
A good way to do dictation is in pairs, with students taking it in turns to dictate lines from a passage that they have studied. In this way, students work at their own pace, correcting after each sentence. Teacher remains free to monitor the activity.
The class is given a passage written in short sentences. They combine these sentences, using appropriate connectives which are scrambled on the blackboard, with extra ones as distractors.
The class copies a passage, taking out all unnecessary words and phrases. The students are permitted to make only minor necessary cosmetic changes to the original structures. This is best done in pairs, with permission to compare work with neighbours. SMS The aim is to send a text message as concisely as possible, because every message costs money.
PICTURE DESCRIPTION A good way to begin is by having the students compose a few questions about the picture. These can then be answered in writing in the form of description. The subject of the picture might be a famous person, a domestic scene, an event, a shop, a well-known building or a place, etc.
The class is shown a series of four to six pictures which indicate a story line. The picture may well be jumbled, if the aim is also to get pairs or groups into discussion. The students then write the story in their own words.
After a passage has been read intensively it can be rewritten in summary form. Clear instructions of this sort should be given: — Summarise the passage in one parapraph, drawing attention to the five main points. In this way, the check relates to the major points of content, rather than to the use of language itself.
