For a telephone listening activity in LINC 5, students could record themselves cancelling a doctor's appointment.
Assessment through discussion task
For level 4 or 5 I used the discussion forum to exchange and comment on recipes. Students posted simple recipes with a photo and then students commented on each other's dishes and asked questions about ingredients, steps in the process etc. As an instructor, I assessed students on their presentation, grammar, ability to write clear steps, and give feedback to others. This activity really took off and elicited a lot of chat when we were able to meet face to face. It also provided an opportunity for formative assessment. I created an assessment sheet and also posted it to the discussion so students could see what they were being assessed on.
Authentic Oral Responses
This idea can be used at ANY level, the conditions/expectations change based on the features of communication in the CLB.
A listening/speaking task can be set up using MP3 files and NanoGong. The teacher records a question or statement as a prompt for the learner. The learner then responds appropriately using NanoGong.
This could be used for skill-using activities in various contexts, as well as an assessment activity.
