Unit 3: Using Audio, Part C

Before you watch:

Have you ever created your own recordings for use as listening material? What kinds of recording might you think of making in this way?

After you watch:

Why is it a good idea to have students listen two or three times to the same recording? How should tasks for the successive listenings be organized?

What do you think about the issues raised by Kathy and Fatima? Do you agree with Bill that in some activities, forcing students to only listen, without seeing the written text, is beneficial?

What other kinds of listening materials can you now imagine using in your class? What sorts of activities might you design to go with these materials?
