SECRETARY RUNNER GAME
It is a kind of dictation activity in which the students compete with each other as groups. At first, choose a short text and make about 4 or 5 copies. Paste them on different corners of the classroom. Make groups of three or four and ask your groups to choose a secretary who will never run during the game except writing down what the runners dictate. The other groups’ members will be the runners whose missions are to run to the text that are assigned them, read and memorize a line of the text and then run back to the writer to dictate what they remember. This goes on until the text is fully copied. The teams score points in the order in which they finish. The groups who have finished early read out their copied text.
