    This 4-day course will present strategies on how to teach contextualized language while staying in the target language. The strategies will be based on Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input Hypothesis—language is acquired when the initial exposure to it consists primarily of oral and reading input that is made comprehensible by the teacher. We will present the idea that a flood of Comprehensible Input ultimately will aid in language acquisition and will lay the foundation necessary for long-term language proficiency.  We will teach unit planning using the Backwards Design approach, while using the Ohio World Language Learning Standards, the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, NCSSFL-ACTFL Can Do Statements, and IPA Summative Assessment.    

     

    The course will include:

    • Paradigm shifts for teaching language in the 21st Century
    • Using Kinesthetic Actions and Gestures through TPR
    • Contextualizing stories and narrative (TPRS)
    • Questioning strategies that keep the classroom in the target language 90%+

     The How, What, Why & When of Teaching with Comprehensible Input with Gary Dibianca

    Teaching in the target language is most effective when what teachers are communicating to students is comprehended. By assuring to keep all input comprehensible, students can then construct meaning based on the input a teacher provides.

    This workshop will share some of the best strategies used in comprehensible input classrooms as we define the following:

    • HOW to facilitate target language instruction for proficiency
    • WHAT to teach (including how to adapt a textbook)
    • WHY teaching with comprehensible input can help all learners acquire language
    • WHEN to present certain aspects of content as a teacher moves toward teaching with more comprehensible input 

    Throughout the workshop, there will be sample novice and intermediate lessons and unit plans that are analyzed as we discuss ways to move more students to communicate and build fluency.
