More than just translation

More than just translation | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

There are many other ways to show comprehension while reading than just translation.
 While reading a chapter in a novel, translation should only occur when there is a break down in communication, as Kristy Placido says.  Here is a list of other ways/activities for students to show comprehension while reading and to break up the reading routine.

Rethinking Second Language Learning

Rethinking Second Language Learning | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book evaluates a project where formal classroom learning of a second language was supplemented with informal, natural interactions with older native speakers of the target language, delivering a number of pedagogical and societal benefits. The authors introduce a model of intergenerational, intercultural encounters which aims to promote the use of community language resources; enrich the experiences of young learners; foster greater understanding between generations; break down cultural stereotypes; encourage appreciation of different cultures and enhance the quality of life and community engagement of older people with a bi/multilingual background. It draws on theories of language acquisition, discourse analysis and psychosocial perspectives to propose a model of language learning for students that can be used for any language or locality. It is therefore an essential resource for graduate students, researchers and language teachers as well as for education, aged and youth care policy makers, practitioners and community services workers who are interested in innovative language pedagogy.

Working Memory and Second Language Learning by Zhisheng (Edward) Wen - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications

Working Memory and Second Language Learning by Zhisheng (Edward) Wen - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book introduces an approach to understanding and measuring working memory components and functions in second language learning, processing and development. It presents comprehensive, thorough and updated reviews of relevant literatures from cognitive sciences and applied linguistics. Drawing on multidisciplinary research, the book advocates a conceptual framework for integrating working memory theories with second language acquisition theories. An innovative theoretical model is also presented, which illuminates research studies investigating the distinctive roles of phonological and executive working memory as they relate to specific L2 learning domains, skills and processes. Theoretical and methodological implications of this integrative perspective are further elaborated and discussed within the specific realms of L2 task-based performance and language aptitude research.

In Defense of Fearlessly Making Things Up

In Defense of Fearlessly Making Things Up | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
If you can accept that you’re going to sound like a fool no matter what you say – even if you say something perfectly, you’ll do it in a fünny áccent, or put the emphASis on the wrong syllAble, and your conversation partner will laugh at you – if you can accept that, you might as well push it as far as it can go. Be aggressive with your semantic inventions. Create great new monstrosities to surprise and delight, become the life of the linguistic party! Make your partner laugh and think, as they will be forced by your creativity to rethink what’s possible in their own language.
And you will still be communicating perfectly well.

Make sure your students get F.E.D.

Make sure your students get F.E.D. | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Feedback is critical to any learning endeavor but I would pose that more important than feedback is to feed forward. It is one thing to tell learners what they did right and what they did wrong. We do that rather naturally because that is what any graded paper tells students. All too often though those papers or rubrics end up on the floor or in the trash as soon as students see a score. When this happens, there is an obviously disconnect between the feedback we have provided and what the students find helpful or useful. We need to ask ourselves how then can we provide feedback that feeds forward improving student performance?  First, focus on clear expectations for performance. Next, use evidence to provide feedback on the performance. Finally, devise a plan for continued growth based on the focus and evidence.

Positive Psychology in SLA

Positive Psychology in SLA | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Positive psychology is the scientific study of how human beings prosper and thrive. This is the first book in SLA dedicated to theories in positive psychology and their implications for language teaching, learning and communication. Chapters examine the characteristics of individuals, contexts and relationships that facilitate learning: positive emotional states such as love, enjoyment and flow, and character traits such as empathy, hardiness and perseverance. The contributors present several innovative teaching ideas to bring out these characteristics among learners. The collection thus blends new teaching techniques with cutting-edge theory and empirical research undertaken using qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods approaches. It will be of interest to SLA researchers, graduate students, trainee and experienced teachers who wish to learn more about language learning psychology, individual differences, learner characteristics and new classroom practices.

Building Student Responsibility For Learning: Pre-to-Post Oral Activity Ideas

Building Student Responsibility For Learning: Pre-to-Post Oral Activity Ideas | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
One of the big things that I have learned, and continue to learn, in my teaching is that, in order for learning to occur, my students need to be as aware of/involved in it as I am. Increasingly I’ve been building in opportunities for them to take on responsibility for their learning and provide feedback for themselves (and me) on the process. I’ve done a variety of posts in the past on parts of these but thought I would put it all together in one post that spans the ‘pre to post’ activity process.

Complexity in Classroom Foreign Language Learning Motivation by Richard J. Sampson - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications

Complexity in Classroom Foreign Language Learning Motivation by Richard J. Sampson - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book explores how complex systems theory can contribute to the understanding of classroom language learner motivation through an extended examination of one particular, situated research project. Working from the lived experience of the participants, the study describes how action research methods were used to explore the dynamic conditions operating in a foreign language classroom in Japan. The book draws attention to the highly personalised and individual, yet equally co-formed nature of classroom foreign language learning motivation and to the importance of agency and emotions in language learning. It presents an extended illustration of the applicability of complex systems theory for research design and process in SLA and its narrative approach shines light upon the evolving nature of research and role of the researcher. The study will be a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and postgraduate students interested in classroom language teaching and learning, especially those with a focus on motivation among learners.

Evaluar para aprender

Evaluar para aprender | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

No es lo mismo evaluar que examinar, ni evaluar que calificar. Evaluar con intencio´n formativa no es igual a medir ni a calificar, ni tan siquiera a corregir. Evaluar tampoco es clasificar ni es examinar ni aplicar tests (Juan Manuel Álvarez Méndez). Hemos confundido, en demasiadas ocasiones el acto de aprender con el de aprobar exámenes. Aprender no es aprobar exámenes.

Fashion Forward

Fashion Forward | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Last year I did an introductory vocab lesson about clothing that had high-energy, engaging, and competitive activities, and lots of Spanish.  What it definitely lacked was ANYTHING related to culture, authentic resources, or real people doing real things.  The lesson was fun, but as I try to improve what I do in the classroom, I am working to find more authentic ways for my students to engage with the language.  This lesson is the upgrade from last year’s lesson.

Language and cognition: meaning across contexts

Language and cognition: meaning across contexts | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Using the principles and methods of cognitive linguistics, pragmatics as well as corpus linguistics, this volume offers insights into how language structure and contextualised language use condition the meaning-making process. A total of ten contributors draw from English, Greek, German, Hungarian, Latin, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian to examine different types of linguistic evidence ranging from academic discourse, to literature, church language as well as media language. While the papers employ a choice of analytic constructs and research methodologies, they share the central objective of uncovering, systematically describing and explaining some of the patterns of language-prompted meaning construction and communication, both intralingually and in a contrastive perspective.

Teachers trying to globalize their practice often ask me how to develop a successful, socially responsible collaboration with a teacher, classroom, or sister school elsewhere in the world. There is no magic wand in this work. There is a lot of trial and error, a lot of struggling and risk, and a lot of work involved in building a successful partnership—and no guarantee of success.
