I have used this consistently this year for most reading texts as well as oral presentations. While ss were listening to a presentation made by a student they had to note down the above though I had changed the first one to an idea or piece of information. It worked really well and offered them a more solid task while listening which drew everyone's attention (including the presenter's) to language used and clear pieces of info presented.  The teacher could also use the findings to anything from building topic related vocabulary, main idea, linking words and lots more. It gave us the opportunity for peer learning by sharing notes and building a summary of the text or presentation - reconstructing the text or adding to it.
