Day 3:  Extending the Comprehensible Input and Assessing Progress

 1. Embedded Reading:

     In any given language class, each teacher needs to deal with a variety students ‘abilities in reading.  Embedded Readings are designed to bridge the gap, and offer differentiated instructions to better meet each student’s needs. How to create effective Embedded Readings is the key for students’ engagement and reading success.

In day-3 workshop, we will be exploring various ways of creating embedded readings, with variety of ressources.  (A video clip, an existing legend, a song lyrics, or a teacher or class-created story.)

 2. Let’s Movie Talk

     Most students are visual learners.  A Movie Talk can provide ample comprehensible Input via visual clues, as well as, rich auditory input through a teacher's simplified narration.  Moreover, movies, from a target language country, are great authentic cultural resources. Many have written the effectiveness of utilizing MT.  During this section, how to choose a film or video clip for a MT, the preparation going into a MT, and the process of doing a MT, will all be carefully examined.  Embedded Readings will be linked back with MT, post-MT reading activities will be shared.  MT date base and demo samples will be provided as well.

 3. Assessment in the TPRS Classroom:

     In the afternoon, formative and summative assessment in TPRS will be introduced along with grading scales and categories.   There will be time built in for participants to ask questions about this important topic.
