Overview

Dictations for Discussion is an intermediate-to-advanced-level text that is intended to improve the listening and speaking skills of ESL students. Reading and writing are also reinforced, along with progress in vocabulary and grammar. This text provides a wide variety of dictations from authentic materials that include provocative news items, problems to solve, and decisions to make. There are 61 units.

The units are designed to stand alone so that teachers can pick and choose which dictations meet the needs, interests, and levels of their students. Each unit begins with a short introduction that provides a background and context for the dictation. The central focus of the unit is a dictation activity. There are five types: Partial, pair, and prediction dictations, dictogloss, and notetaking. Each is followed by a discussion section. The discussions can take place in pairs or small groups, some in class and some out. The unit ends with a follow-up activity which is intended to explore the topic further through writing, research, and speaking activities. This text includes several cooperative learning activities.

    Judy DeFilippo and Catherine Sadow were sharing an office at Northeastern’s English Language Center when inspired by “Dictation New Methods New Possibilities “ by Davis and Rinvolucri they began to develop varieties of interesting relevant dictations to use in their listening and speaking classes. This led to Dictations for Discussion and three other lower-level books each of which use four different kinds of dictations.
