Today, I’m tackling one of the most divisive topics in language education head-on in this YouTube LIVE session.
Yep, I’m diving deep into the world of Comprehensible Input, or as the cool kids call it, CI.
We all know the drill. You're fully bought into CI; you've seen it transform your classroom and boost your students' language acquisition like never before.
But then there's this roadblock—you know, the parents who raise an eyebrow, the administrators who can't shake off their old-school beliefs, or even some colleagues who are stuck in the past. 😬
So What's on the Menu? 📋
- Why the Skepticism?: First, I’m gonna dig deep into why some folks can't get past their reservations about CI. Could it be lack of information, an attachment to traditional methods, or something else? Let's dissect the issue and talk about how to break those barriers down.
- Education is Key: You'd be surprised how far a little 101 goes. We'll discuss ways to educate the skeptics without overwhelming them with academic jargon.
- All About the Data: Skeptics love numbers, so I’ll roll out the stats and studies that support CI. But hold your horses; it's not just about throwing numbers around. I’ll break it down in a way that even your grandma would understand.
- Real-World Testimonials: What's better than actual, tangible success stories, right? We'll share testimonials and case studies that will make even the most skeptical raise an eyebrow.
- Logistical Lowdown: Last but not least, I’m getting into the nitty-gritty—the how-tos of implementing CI in a way that's smooth, effective, and least disruptive.
So set a reminder, grab your favorite snack, and get comfy.
This is gonna be one heck of a discussion, and trust me, you don't want to miss out.
Can't wait to see you all there! 🎉👋
