Day 3: Extending the Comprehensible Input and Assessing Progress
1. Embedded Reading:
In any given language class, each teacher needs to deal with a variety students' abilities in reading. Embedded Readings are designed to bridge the gap and offer differentiated instructions to better meet each student’s needs. How to create effective Embedded Readings is the key for students’ engagement and reading success.
In day-3 workshop, we will be exploring various ways of creating embedded readings with a variety of resources. (A video clip, an existing legend, a song lyrics, or a teacher or class-created story.)
2. Let’s Movie Talk
Most students are visual learners. A Movie Talk can provide ample comprehensible input via visual clues as well as rich auditory input through a teacher's simplified narration. Moreover, movies from a target language country are great authentic cultural resources. Many have written the effectiveness of utilizing MT. During this section, how to choose a film or video clip for an MT, the preparation going into an MT, and the process of doing an MT, will all be carefully examined. Embedded Readings will be linked back with MT and post-MT reading activities will be shared. MT date base and demo samples will be provided as well.
3. Create a multiplatform lesson
This is a hands-on workshop. Participants will be working collaboratively together to create a multi-platform based lesson. They will practice selecting essential phrases, incorporating PQA, embedding picture talk, utilizing music and short videos, and creating embedded readings. Come prepared with something you’d like to work on, and enjoy a community of support and sharing.
4. Assessment in the TPRS Classroom:
In the afternoon, formative and summative assessment in TPRS will be introduced along with grading scales and categories. There will be time built in for participants to ask questions about this important topic.
