What it is:

Are you looking for a powerful strategy to facilitate English acquisition? Bilingual and foreign language teachers have long known the power of the Dictado strategy to facilitate language acquisition. This session presents the power of using Dictado in ESL and Content Area Classrooms as an approach for metalinguistic awareness and content comprehension. Recent research has demonstrated its power to help students to acquire grammatical rules and writing conventions. When implemented effectively, the Dictado strategy integrates the use of all language domains: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
