Darren Kuropatwa's curator insight, January 31, 2014 9:47 AM

This slide deck illustrates over 50 different language learning teaching strategies. While these ideas were originally shared in the context of learning English as an Additional Language (EAL) they easily transfer to the learning of other languages as well.

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Pay attention.. think it's relevant .. use language as a tool to communicate... understand the message..language learning is physiological training....Learn to tolerate ambiguity... Listen a lot..get the meaning.. use patters you already know.. start mixing, create new language...Use glue words..get a language parent.. someone that understand yoo to build confidence...everything you know is an image.. connect words, sounds, feelings, sensations to an image.... you are in control.. you can do it! Have fun!!!!! :) #doris3meflcenter #urbe #speakenglish #languagelearning #efl #esl

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Check list to get your students to engage on their process of learning... 

 

On the question. "What engages students?" 

 

1. Working with their peers.. work in pairs, teams, on line, in class, mobile..

2. Working with technology... done it.. It's amazing how they get to work.. it helps them realize they can do things, they can become authors.. 

3 Connecting the real world to the work we do/project-based learning.. they realize they are part of the solution.. they are learning to make a better world.

4. Clearly love what you do. yep.. certainly

5. Get me out of my seat! tell them to move around.. walk .. talk, share, find out answers..

6. Bring in visuals... Everybody love visuals, graphics, videos, animations

7. Student choice.. freedom to decide what they want and can do..

8. Understand your clients -- the kids.. talk to them.. find out .. what they think..how they are getting the picture.. enjoy what they can teach you...

9. Mix it up! yep.. :)  keep them intrigue.. on what the teacher is showing us today.. model how they can also become explorers and serendipiters...

10. Be human... enjoy your class, enjoy learning with your students.. have fun with their stories and their contributions to the process of learning...

The Paper Activity 2 - YouTube

The Paper Activity 2 - YouTube | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Paper Folding Activity

Rationale: When in a conflict situation, parties to the conflict can become convinced that their truth is the one and only truth. This exercise encourages participants to consider that one experience may lead to multiple interpretations. 


Objectives:

1. To understand the importance of viewing a situation from multiple perspectives.

2. To consider how understanding multiple perspectives relates to managing conflicts.

 

Procedures:

1. Tell students that they are going to do a brief exercise. Distribute one sheet of blank paper to each student. Ask them to stand somewhere in the room and to close their eyes during the

exercise.

2. Ask them not to pose any questions during the exercise. If they ask a question about what they should do, tell them to follow the steps as they understand them.

3. Instruct the students to do the following steps:

a. Fold the paper in half.

b. Fold the paper in half again.

c. Tear off the bottom right corner.

d. Turn the paper upside down.

e. Tear off the other bottom right corner.

4. Ask students to open their eyes and hold the paper over their head so everyone can see it.

5. Ask the students the discussion questions below:

a. What do you notice?

b. How did you feel when you saw what your paper looked like in comparison to everyone else’s papers? Did anyone think they had done the exercise incorrectly when they saw others’ papers?

c. How could there be so many interpretations when I gave everyone the same instructions? Was there one right way to do this exercise?

d. Let’s consider that the paper represents your opinion or perspective, what does the exercise tell you about perspectives?

e. Why might it be useful to look at something in a different way or from a different perspective? What can we learn from looking at things differently?
