   Work well as bell-ringers
   Aligned with COS, SAT-10, AHSGE
    Item Specifications
   Focus on
       Grammar
       Punctuation
       Capitalization
       Mechanics

    Give clear and immediate feedback
    Hold students accountable
Accountability: Key to
   Students write the DOLs
       In a notebook
       On a DOL form*
   Teacher checks DOLS at end of each week
    (or two weeks).
   Weekly or bi-weekly quiz reflects DOL content

Any Questions about Daily
Oral Language?
   Where do I get my DOLs?
     Textbooks
     Online grammar sites

     DOL workbooks

     Student writing (unfortunately, a

      wonderful source of errors!)
    Remember: Align DOL with
      content to be tested.
                                   Is governor Riley
                                   in the capital

By the way:

   Use a variety of errors
   Recycle errors to keep
    students “on their toes”
   Get feedback in various ways.
       make corrections on overhead
       write answers on board
       write on individual dry erase boards
Keeping it fun
   Try using student names
    in the error samples
   Allow students to submit samples
   Use humorous sentences or
    interest-grabbing topics
   Use newspaper “errors”
   Build a non-threatening environment for
    sharing answers
A DOL “Sample”

                  DOL #1

    a stranger.              related sentences with a
                            Etc.
