Tired of Teaching “Elements of Plot”? A New, Fun Approach! Are you tired of beginning each school year with the same ol’ “Elements of Plot” lesson? The initial vocabulary and concepts related to “Plot” can be kind of “dry” and “boring”, especially if you’re a student in grades 7th-10th! You know what I’m talking about because we’ve all been there ;) I took some time (well, quite a bit of time!) designing a new way to introduce the “elements of plot” to my ninth grade English students! Why some people find learning a language harder than others Scientists at McGill University in Canada found that if left anterior operculum and the left superior temporal gyrus communicate more with each other at rest, then language learning is easier. "These findings have implications for predicting language learning success and failure," said study author Dr Xiaoqian Chai. For the study, researchers scanned the brains of 15 adult English speakers who were about to begin an intensive 12-week French course, and then tested their language abilities both before and after the course. Participants with stronger connections between the left left anterior operculum and an important region of the brain's language network called the left superior temporal gyrus showed greater improvement in the speaking test. However, that doesn't mean success at a second language is entirely predetermined by the brain's wiring.
