The brain is curious and meaningful The brain is attracted to novelty. It tends to be more active when exposed to new ideas and challenges. Meaning is more important to the brain than is information. The brain searches for meaning through patterning, which allows for the storage and connection of information into meaningful categories. ( Caine, 2001 ) HOW?
The brain is social, conscious and subconscious Language learning becomes more effective in a setting where social interaction and cooperation takes place. Learning involves both conscious and subconscious processes. (Caine, 2001)
The brain searches for meaning (through patterning) Matching ◦ words expressions ◦ words – definitions ◦ words - headlines ◦ words/ stories – pictures ◦ questions – paragraphs in texts Ordering and sorting ◦ sequence of events ◦ ranking - order of importance, seriousness, preference ◦ categorising ◦ unscrambling letters, words Filling in gaps ◦ missing letters in words ◦ unfinished sentences ◦ cloze tests
