11D The Value of Writing in the Cl Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Traditionally, we have thought that practicing a skill is how we learn it, and we have thought that having students write in Latin would help them learn their Latin better. Second Language Acquisition research indicates that writing in the second language does not help students make progress, so why bother with writing? Time is precious, and we want to focus on what helps students make progress. This session will explore what value there is in writing and reflecting on writing in Latin for the Latin classroom particularly for those who are using Comprehensible Input as their mode of teaching. Participants will leave with an approach that requires minimal work on the part of the teacher, a rubric to help their students write and reflect on their writing, and an understanding of writing and reflecting on writing that is of real value to them and their students.

I am gung-ho about about making second language acquisition more joyful and more successful for both learners and teachers. I would love to think big with you about how to provide maximum CI with minimal prep.

For more than half of my 27 years as a Latin teacher, I have devoted myself to creating classrooms where all kinds of learners are welcome and where all students can be successful. My work has come to focus on Comprehensible Input as the key piece to this work: delivering understandable messages in Latin in a variety of ways.
