I loved reading your post, especially as I use both of these techniques religiously with my students and have just recently (fanatically!) begun to recommend them to colleagues. I am also a huge fan of echo reading and choral reading (after explicit teaching of procedure, of course!). I look forward to hearing more great ideas from you!
Thanks for the encouragement! I'm the same way! I decided to post about Oral Cloze and Partner Cloze because I feel as though they don't get the same recognition as Choral and Echo.
I hope that the word spreads!
