    In the article "Dictation", Rinvolucri explores and discusses various dictation techniques, including delayed dictation and 'sibling' correction. The article also introduces Contradiction Dictation, where students selectively transcribe statements they agree with. In the second part, "Breaking Rules in the Language Classroom," Rinvolucri discusses the unnoticed rules governing teacher behavior, emphasizing the value of breaking these rules as a means of self-discovery and enhanced teaching. The article encourages educators to reflect on their language classroom rules and consider breaking them as a scientific experiment for personal and pedagogical growth.
