Tech Enhanced Activities - Developing Gist Reading
This is a gist reading activity that can be used with any text that is suitable for the level of the students. You just need to have a computer with a data projector and an internet connection.
Developing gist reading can be a challenge in the paper dependent classroom. Even when you set a time limit and try to push students to read quickly it’s hard to stop them checking vocabulary that they are unsure of.
In this activity the use of a cue-prompter helps to control the speed at which the students read. This gives the teacher control of the reading speed and helps push students to read for gist.
