A really nice pre-paraphrase animation!
« on: December 08, 2009, 02:14:11 PM »
Here's a powerpoint slide about "pre-paraphrasing" that I found on-line.

Before actually paraphrasing a text, one has to ask the "right questions" about the text, such as Who, Where, When , Why, and then, after answering and those questions can one be sure that they have really comprehended and digested the text. It is only after asking the right questions and answering them, can one try to use their own words to convey the same meaning.

This is a really nice power point for teachers who are looking for some "pre-paraphrasing" activity, because it is all about helping students ask the right questions. And it could be used as a whole class interactive activity.

 There are several examples given in this slide. Each slide has a sentence, and there are animations of the"questions" popping out one by one. After the questions, the answer of the question would be highlighted in the sentence, also, through theuse of animation.

Besides, this power point also has cool pictures and sound effects that helps make paraphrasing all the more fun!

Hope you find it useful!
