The child as a learner 1 When to start language learningWhat stops children from learningHow children learn languagesGetting parents involvedGet to know how your children learn When to start language learning Most experts believe that when a child is introduced to a second language at an early age their chances of becoming more proficient in the target language will be higher. However, it is not necessarily true to say "the earlier the better". It is suggested that the most efficient time to learn another language is between 6 and 13. However, children who learn in pre-to-early teens often catch up very quickly with children who learn from an earlier age. Whatever the age, when children learn a second language they develop skills that will help to create opportunities in their future. What stops children from learning Reading the list above, you may be surprised at the number of items that remind you of traditional educational practices.

How to Assess Your Own Learning - InformED Most of us assume it’s up to someone else—a teacher, administrator, employer—to measure how much we’ve learned. But when we do this, we lose something very valuable: our own educational narrative. We may remember which subjects we excelled in and which subjects we failed, or recall when and where we learned particular bits of information, but for the most part we can’t make sense of our learning as one long, unfolding event. And cognitive science has confirmed that the whole is, quite crucially, more than the sum of its parts. Many employers complain that today’s graduates seem to have learned nothing at university. One problem is the limited nature of human memory, and the fact that our assessment systems don’t compliment the way the brain works. Another issue, seldom visited but equally important, is that students aren’t encouraged to assess their own learning. Shouldn’t each of us, with our unique backgrounds and study habits, have the most authority on our progress? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Saying to students, “Read this nine-page science article, write a detailed essay on the topic it explores, and turn it in by Wednesday.” Yikes—no safety net, no parachute, no scaffolding—they’re just left blowing in the wind. Let’s start by agreeing that scaffolding a lesson and differentiating instruction are two different things. Scaffolding is breaking up the learning into chunks and then providing a tool, or structure, with each chunk. When scaffolding reading, for example, you might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and then read and discuss as you go. Simply put, scaffolding is what you do first with kids—for those students who are still struggling, you may need to differentiate by modifying an assignment and/or making accommodations (for example, by choosing more accessible text and/or assigning an alternative project). Scaffolding and differentiation do have something in common, though. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

It gets its name from the three stages of student action, with emphasis on what students are to be DOING at each of those stages. How Does It Work? 2) Pair. 3) Share. Why Should I Use Think-Pair-Share? Because of the first stage, when students simply THINK, there is Wait Time: they actually have time to think about their answers. © 1998-present by Raymond C.
Leçon - Les prépositions Les Prépositions Les prépositions, comme leur nom l'indique, sont des mots qui viennent se poser avant, et plus précisément avant un groupe nominal. Il existe une multitude de prépositions en anglais qui ont toutes, bien évidemment un usage spécifique. Les prépositions de temps --> From... to.. "from" indique le point de départ dans le départ "to" indique le point de fin dans le départ ex: from January to July (de janvier à juillet) from 1984 to 1990 (de 1984 à 1990) from 8am to 10 pm (de 8 heures à 22 heures) --> Since "since" indique le début d'un parcours. on le traduirait par 'depuis'. I have lived there since 1994. I have worked as a gardener since January. You have not stopped talking since you arrived. --> For "for" se place avant une durée. I have lived there for 20 years. I have worked as a gardener for eight months. --> Until "until" indique une fin, un point d'arrivée dans le temps. On pourrait le traduire par 'jusqu'à'. I will be at home until Friday. I slept until 10 o'clock.
