DICTOGLOSS

Dictogloss is a great way to teach grammar inductively.  If you are not familiar with the the technique, you can see how simple and effective it can be from the video below.  Notice also how much the students are involved in the process as they struggle to reconstruct the original text.  This is for an upper-intermediate class, but it can be done at any level.


Note that this is actually an extract from a DVD that accompanies Jerry Harmer's book, "The Practice of English Language Teaching".
