Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, May 21, 3:41 PM

"Relax, repeat, and remember" is good advice to give our students when trying to learn a new language.  Relaxing lets their affective filter open up so their brain can handle the new information.  Repeating the new information in as many ways as possible (games, conversations, written work, presentations, pictures, whatever it takes) also aids in learning  new information.  Good luck with your class's new mantra.

This is a great idea in infusing character building while strengthening student's language and sentence building in a communicative situation. 

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, April 30, 6:53 PM

This is a fun way to get students involved in not only the writing process but also grammar.  The beautiful thing is they don't even know they're learning grammar because they are too busy giving advice and telling their classmates what to do.
