Tell them the following instructions (or similar): 'I am going to tell you a summary of Chapters 1-2 of A Midsummer Night s Dream, but I am going to make some mistakes in the summary. When you hear a mistake please call out the right word or words.' As an example, in the version of the summary below there are 12 mistakes to read out, all written in italics. As a quick reminder to you, the correct version is given immediately afterwards in brackets. Hippolyta and Theseus were sad (happy) because they were going to get married. Theseus s grandfather (friend), Egeus, was angry because his sister (daughter) Hermia didn t want to marry Demetrius. She loved handsome Lysander and not Demetrius. In the morning (past) Demetrius and Helena were in love. Now Demetrius loved Hermia and poor Helena was very sad because she still loved him. Helena was Hermia s worst (best) friend. Hermia and Lysander decided to run away together and fight (get married). When they saw Helena she said Hermia was funny (lucky) because Demetrius loved her. They told Helena about their new house (plan). Helena thought about Demetrius a lot and decided to tell him about her new dress (the plan). Demetrius went into the city (wood) to look for Hermia and Lysander, and Helena kissed (followed) him. Rub out On the board / the interactive whiteboard, copy a short paragraph from the summary. Gradually, rub out individual words and even twoand three-word phrases. Begin by rubbing out some of the important content words. After each time you rub out some words get the whole class to read out the text, supplying the missing words from their memory. Eventually, when all the words on the board have been rubbed out, the class will amazingly! remember all the text. The text used for the rub out activity need not taken from the summary. You could use a dramatic part of the story, for example. 9 Dictogloss Sit the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each student has pen and paper. Tell them that you are going to read out a summary of Chapters 1-2 of A Midsummer Night s Dream twice, and that they may note down key words or short phrases. Read the text once at normal speed, pause for a minute, then read it again. Tell the students to work together in their groups and use their notes to write a text which is grammatically and lexically correct but which doesn t have to be the same as the original: the aim of their writing is to produce a correct text, not to show they have perfect memories! Five minutes should be enough. Then students compare their written texts with each others. This can be done by reading aloud, but it is better if the texts are passed around or stuck on a wall (or compared in electronic form). Groups should try to point out any errors in the texts of other groups. Finally, show or give the students the original text; ask them to identify any differences with their own texts, and ask them if they think the differences are important. 10 Cut it down Put the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each group has a copy of the summary and a red pen/highlighter or access to computer. Tell them that they must cut 15 words from the summary: their shortened version must still be grammatically correct. They can change punctuation, but they mustn t add any words. Next, ask students to cut another 15 words of the summary, and proceed as above. As a final challenge, ask the students to cut yet another 15 words. 7 8

6 S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S Build it up Put the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each group has a copy of the summary and a red pen or access to computer. Tell them that they must add two details, which they must choose themselves, to the summary. Tell them that the details they add can be words, phrases or even sentences. Tell them they shouldn t write fewer than five words, and that there is no upper limit, but they probably won t need more than about 25 words. When they have finished, they should compare their versions. It is better if the texts are stuck on a wall or passed around (or compared in electronic form). They should decide which are the most interesting added details, and why. Rewrite it Tell the students to rewrite the summary changing some of the information. They should use their imagination to add details which can be words, phrases or sentences and change some of the words and phrases that are already there. When they have finished, they should compare their shortened versions. It is better if the texts are stuck on a wall or passed around (or compared in electronic form). They should decide which are the best cuts, and why. SUMMARY Hippolyta and Theseus were happy because they were going to get married.

Oberon put the magic juice on Demetrius s eyes, and Puck brought Helena to Demetrius. Lysander and Demetrius wanted to fight too. Hermia became very angry and wanted to fight Helena. Oberon was very angry with Puck, but he had a plan. He used magic leaves and everything was right again

15 S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S 7 8 Correct the mistakes! This is an oral activity, so do not give the students any photocopies. Tell them the following instructions (or similar): 'I am going to tell you a summary of Chapters 5-8 of A Midsummer Night s Dream, but I am going to make some mistakes in the summary. When you hear a mistake please call out the right word or words.' As an example, in the version of the summary below there are 10 mistakes to read out, all written in italics. As a quick reminder to you, the correct version is given immediately afterwards in brackets. Hermia was looking for Lysander but found Bottom (Demetrius). Oberon saw Demetrius and Hermia and understood Puck s story (mistake). Hermia was happy (angry) and ran to (walked away from) Demetrius and he fell asleep. Oberon put the magic juice on Demetrius s eyes, and Puck brought Helena to Demetrius. When Demetrius fell asleep (woke up), he fell in love with Helena. But Helena thought it was a big joke. Hermia found Lysander, but Lysander said that he loved Helena. Hermia became very angry and wanted to fight Lysander (Helena). Lysander and Bottom (Demetrius) wanted to fight too. Titania (Oberon) was very angry with Puck, but she (he) had a plan. He used magic leaves and made everything right again. Everyone was sad (happy) and there were three weddings: Theseus and Hippolyta, Demetrius and Helena and Lysander and Hermia. Rub out On the board / the interactive whiteboard, copy a short paragraph from the summary. Gradually, rub out individual words and even two- and three-word phrases. Begin by rubbing out some of the important content words. After each time you rub out some words get the whole class to read out the text, supplying the missing words from their memory. Eventually, when all the words on the board have been rubbed out, the class will amazingly! remember all the text. The text used for the rub out activity need not taken from the summary. You could use a dramatic part of the story, for example. 9 Dictogloss Sit the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each student has pen and paper. Tell them that you are going to read out a summary of Chapters 5-8 of A Midsummer Night s Dream twice, and that they may note down key words or short phrases. Read the text once at normal speed, pause for a minute, then read it again. Tell the students to work together in their groups and use their notes to write a text which is grammatically and lexically correct but which doesn t have to be the same as the original: the aim of their writing is to produce a correct text, not to show they have perfect memories! Five minutes should be enough. Then students compare their written texts with each others. This can be done by reading aloud, but it is better if the texts are passed around or stuck on a wall (or compared in electronic form). Groups should try to point out any errors in the texts of other groups. Finally, show or give the students the original text; ask them to identify any differences with their own texts, and ask them if they think the differences are important. 10 Cut it down Put the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each group has a copy of the summary and a red pen/highlighter or access to computer. Tell them that they must cut 15 words from the summary: their shortened version must still be grammatically correct. They can change punctuation, but they mustn t add any words. Next, ask students to cut another 15 words of the summary, and proceed as above. As a final challenge, ask the students to cut yet another 15 words

16 S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S S U M M A R Y - B A S E D A C T I V I T I E S 11 Build it up Put the students in groups of two to five. Make sure that each group has a copy of the summary and a red pen or access to computer. Tell them that they must add two details, which they must choose themselves, to the summary. Tell them that the details they add can be words, phrases or even sentences. Tell them they shouldn t write fewer than five words, and that there is no upper limit, but they probably won t need more than about 25 words. When they have finished, they should compare their versions. It is better if the texts are stuck on a wall or passed around (or compared in electronic form). They should decide which are the most interesting added details, and why. KEY 1, 2, 3: 1 understood; 2 away; 3 asleep; 4 joke; 5 became; 6 too; 7 with; 8 had; 9 again; 10 were 4: 1 C; 2 A; 3 B; 4 A; 5 B; 6 A; 7 C; 8 B; 9 C; 10 A 5: 1 was; 2 from; 3 fell; 4 on; 5 up; 6 a; 7 that; 8 too; 9 had; 10 were 6: 1 D; 2 A; 3 G; 4 C; 5 E; 6 J; 7 B; 8 I; 9 H; 10 F 12 Rewrite it Tell the students to rewrite the summary changing some of the information. They should use their imagination to add details which can be words, phrases or sentences and change some of the words and phrases that are already there. When they have finished, they should compare their shortened versions. It is better if the texts are stuck on a wall or passed around (or compared in electronic form). They should decide which are the best cuts, and why. SUMMARY Hermia was looking for Lysander but found Demetrius. Oberon saw Demetrius and Hermia and understood Puck s mistake.
