Friday Presentation: Additive Bilingualism in Suburban Schools - Changing the System by Brian Koland

Friday Presentation: Additive Bilingualism in Suburban Schools - Changing the System by Brian Koland | SLIFE | Scoop.it

This presentation will focus on two suburban school districts' effort to address English Learners by providing instruction in Spanish as well as English. Both school districts have made small but significant movements towards providing this research based approach to language instruction. The session will address the additive model as well as lessons learned in early implementation.

Brian Koland is currently the English Language Supervisor in the Roseville Area Schools as well as the North St. Paul, Maplewood, Oakdale Schools.

Martha Mason Miller's insight:

Minnesotans who were at the MinneSLIFE Spring Fling miniconference on April 13 will get to hear a different aspect of the Roseville Area Schools EL program which Brian manages: well worth attending!

Minnesota El, Bilingual, and Migrant Education Conference, May 3-4, 2013.

Revisiting Iraq Through The Eyes Of An Exiled Poet : NPR | SLIFE | Scoop.it
Dunya Mikhail fled her homeland in the wake of the first Gulf War, after her writing was labeled subversive by Saddam Hussein's government. She has never physically returned to Iraq, but she remembers it in her poetry.
Martha Mason Miller's insight:

Dunya Mikhail's poetry, poignant, painful, touches me as a teacher of (and learner from) refugees, but also because of the short time I lived there in 1978. Through these decades of war, I've thought often of the Iraqi people, wondering how their spirit can survive it.

I know my ESL students play video games, so maybe it's time they taught ME. Any thoughts?

Video Games are a good source of inspiration when it comes to learning... and teaching! Here's a good article showing the most relevant points to consider regarding its use in the classroom.

Songs in the classroom. So many teachers set out with the idea that students have to learn the song = the only way to go. After once or twice through, without any stops, images, TPR, context etc it's a "Now let's sing along!" calamity. Could they do that in another language?!

 

A treasure chest of useful ideas, and the by product of any might be a humming along by the end. Songs are great tools if handled with care - ie make it fun & subliminal

12 Mind Blowing Number Systems From Other Languages

12 Mind Blowing Number Systems From Other Languages | SLIFE | Scoop.it
Today is a big day for lovers of the number 12, and no one loves 12s more than the members of the Dozenal Society. The Dozenal Society advocates for ditching the base-10 system we use for counting in favor of a base-12 system.
Martha Mason Miller's insight:

I'm going to find out whether my students' cultures use a different number system. Could this be contributing to their difficulty with basic math?

It could be used as guide for conversation among students, better than for interaction teacher-student

They are great questions although watch out for the Yes/No questions. Add a why/why not at the end to ensure ss practise fluency
