Horizontal Conjugation in Textivate!

O.M.G.! I love using Horizontal Conjugations. I think that they are a great way to let students give a little bit of output, but is still very structured. I’ve been doing a lot of “horizontal conjugation” while doing special person interviews by asking students what the other student would say about themselves. So students have heard the first person a lot, and now I want them to start trying some (very structured) output.

I started off by typing the 1st person version as the main text, note that I selected first person forms for the user defined gap activities.Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 11.58.00 AM.png

Then I typed the third person version in the extra text box.

So when students goto start doing activities with the text they get something that looks like this:

They get the third person text to reference as they reconstruct the text in the first person.

I did preempt the horizontal conjugation with textivate activities with JUST the third person version and the English translation for support. Check out the sequence HERE.
