Jenny Orchard at Frances Keevil Gallery Sydney | View works and biography by Jenny Orchard "My Zookinii's - PlantAnimals, PlantPeople and SoulFlowers are an irreligious, non prophet disorganization of recently departed extinct species and genetic labaroritory misfits who now reside in a place called Metempsychosia, from this place they now pursue their cause of Multispecies Empathy and Universal Compassion. They visit me sometimes and I have reconstructed some of them for you to see, like the contents of Pandora's box, they can be beneficial or otherwise; some are magnificently confused, some bizarre, some sublime. A Zookinii's itchy touch comes from the Australian landscape - choko plants, banksias, the coral reef of Queensland, grasses and weeds, kangaroos and backyard chooks; they have mingled with strange genetic codes and foreign species. My work expresses my joy and awe at the diversity and beauty of all creation and its universal soul." Select Exhibitions « Back to artists « Back to previous page

Movie Talk: Un hombre triste se pone feliz – My generation of polyglots Movie talk on the fly Recently a teacher asked me to describe how I do movie talk with my classes. I believe that Movie talk is most effective when planned out so that target structures are recycled, but thinking about Krashen’s argument for non-targeted CI has led me to feel better about all of the Movie talks that I do on the fly. Nonetheless, even with my impromptu movie talks, I am still recycling target structures by relying on the super sixteen verbs that are posted on my wall. (1) Talking through the video When students came in today they saw the frame to the left. The first time through I stop it as often as possible, simply describing what we see. I rarely write anything on the board the first time through (unless a student explicitly asks); I want them to hear the language first. (2) Paired retells (3) Personalization This is the most enjoyable part of the lesson. (4) Questions I asked students to write nine questions about the video using all of our question words.

Teaching With a Mountain View: Topic Sentences I am so lucky to be working side-be-side with the creator of an incredible writing program this year! She and a former colleague (who I taught 3rd grade with) created the entire school-wide curriculum, and it is so cohesive! I'm LOVING it. I love having something that I can turn to and an excellent scope and sequence for writing. It's especially fantastic because, as a school-wide program, the kids build on what they are learning year to year... which is why when I introduced topic sentences, almost ALL of the kids were already familiar with the concept and the types of sentences we use. You can read more about the writing curriculum here. The four types of topic sentences we teach are If...Then, Even though, Since, and When. They each wrote in their notebook the four types of sentences (here is a picture of my teacher notebook that I projected on the board). The next day, we did an activity inspired by Stephanie at Teaching in Room 6. Remember, there are two almost identical sets.

Todally Comprehensible Latin: CI Reading Strategies Reading in the target language can be divided into three phases: pre-reading, reading, and post-reading. Each of theses phases is important to contributing to student comprehension and literacy in the target language. Below is a list of reading stratgies which I have collected and written about on my blog (if there is not a link, it means that I plan to write about it). Why is reading important to language acquisition? According to Krashen: “Our reading ability, our ability to write in an acceptable writing style, our spelling ability, vocabulary knowledge, and our ability to handle complex syntax is the result of reading.” I always say that reading is where the magic happens in language acquisition! As Carol Gaab states, "The brain CRAVES novelty," so for one story, I may do 2-3 different activities for prereading, while I may do 5-6 different post-reading activties. PreReading (anything used to preview vocab/structures) - TPRS/Ask a Story - running dictatio - embedded writing

How Do I do MovieTalk? | t.p.r.s. q&a Movietalk is the single best, simplest add-on to t.p.r.s. there is. You can do it; your colleagues who don’t use tprs/ci can do it; here is How To Do MovieTalk! All you need is a way to show a video/Internet clip in your class. A) if you have done a story, find a short video– animated film, commercial, public-service ad, clip from a movie– which will let you say your target structures. There are a zillion suggestions on yahoo’s moretprs listserv; some of my favorites include — Birdbox Studios’ youtube offerings (animated– many available) — “Chicken or the Egg?” B). C) Turn sound OFF. D) Play 10-20 seconds of the video. E) Now, point and start making statements, and then circling them. The beauty of MovieTalk is that you can target not only your specific structures but also anything else the students have already seen.. F) When the circling runs out of steam, play 10-30 more seconds of video, then pause and repeat. My favorite variations: 1) Picturetalk before the movie. C) Movie trailers.

Nous sommes 2 Unit 1: Foundations in the passé composé This unit is about laying a solid foundation in the past tenses for a year of rich, student-centered, comprehension-based instruction. While originally designed to start the year in a Level 2 French course, the four lessons included in this unit can be scattered throughout a Level 1 or 2 course in order to expose students to contextualized input in the past tense. The four lessons included each span several days: WENT card talkThe Lion and the Zebra fableRumor Has It discussion activityCaesar Sentences Card Talk This is Unit 1 of the Nous sommes curriculum for French 2.
