Have you been using the cloze exercises available at my website? There are six of them each month, based on the text from Easy English NEWS. There are multiple uses for them, including reviewing, testing, dictations and collaborations. Students can self correct or correct each other’s work by going directly to the newspaper article that each cloze is taken from. /p>
There is also a which-word-does-not belong test with vocabulary from the current issue. I don’t post answers for these as there can be more than one right answer. The point is for the student to explain his or her reason for grouping three words and saying the fourth word does not belong. A good reason makes the students’ answer correct.
