So we have readings based on/connected to stories, and we have the novels, and there is another cool way to read. If you are looking for block filler-uppers, this is the ticket, along with dictation.
So you set up the LCD or however you do that and you just sit on a stool next to it and ask the class to tell the story that you just finished to you in L2. But you’ll take L1 for clarifications. Whatever. So they say, “There was a girl.”
You type it in and they read it. You just rebuild the story. I write it in the present since I asked it in the past. A half hour later, you’ve got most of the story rebuilt. They’ve learned some grammar. But it doesn’t seem like a half hour. It seems like ten minutes.
