LANGUAGE is the vehicle to take us to the destination
Immersion Protocols 1.High ratio of native speakers to teachers will provide maximum Comprehensible Input. –Use the target language as much as possible 2.Teachers will engage in cultural learning experiences while listening in a world language. –Teachers may experience some initial discomfort –Focus is on building listening skills (not speaking)
Immersion Protocols This contextual support, along with the repetition of key words will help the students create meaning. –Facilitators should support UNDERSTANDING through gestures, slower speech, repetition Teachers will further engage with the world language through a variety of interactive activities designed to promote student choice. –Teachers are allowed to process the information in English, ask for clarification etc.
Strategy Session Protocols Be a Learner with the group Join in small group discussion (English ok) Help the presenter/mentor facilitate activities Engage with the school teams to provide cultural insights
