Another really simple idea for all those use of english papers…. just remove the gaps.
For exam classes this works with the following areas:
FCE & CAE:
Use of English Part One – multiple choice cloze
Use of English Part Two – open cloze
Use of English Part Three – word formation
Reading Part One: multiple choice cloze
Use of English Part One: open cloze
Use of English Part Two: word formation
Simply take the target text and re-type it but without the gaps given in the original.
The idea is that first of all the learners work together to figure out where the gaps are. Having done that, they can then work out what is possibly missing, before comparing their ideas with answer options (for multiple choice cloze) or the root words (word formation).
You can then give full feedback.
