In this session, we introduce three different lesson patterns to use to fully exploit all of the language learning potential in a listening text.  The first lesson pattern exploits the listening text for both meaning and form.  The second lesson pattern exploits the content of the listening text for meaning.  Finally, the third lesson pattern exploits the language of the listening text for form.  With these three lesson patterns in your planning repertoire, you can make strategic decisions about how to use a listening text for maximum learning effect with a specific group of students.
