Here is a nice strategy to check comprehension!
Skills: reading, listening and speaking
Materials needed: 1 copy of a magazine article per student and a summary prepared by the teacher beforehand
Hand out copies of a magazine article and ask students to read it in silence. Ask them to put it away after they have finished. Explain that they are going to listen to a summary prepared by the teacher and that they should stand up everytime they listen to a wrong piece of information. When students stand up, pause the summary and elicit how they can correct it.
Variation: Students themselves can prepare sentences with information that is right or wrong.
