GROW 14 - Steering Students Towards Meaningful Spoken Communication

Overview

Overview

Communication is at the core of the Learning Languages area. This programme is intended for languages teachers of levels 1-4 of the NZ Curriculum, who would like to inquire into improving student outcomes, with a particular focus on increasing students’ spoken use of the language. It will be relevant for primary, intermediate and secondary teachers, whether new or experienced in teaching a language.

Ellis’s Instructed Second Language Acquisition: A Literature Review and An introduction to the concept of intercultural communicative language teaching and learning: A summary for teachers, which both underpin this area of the Curriculum, will be of particular importance to teachers in this programme. Your inquiry question during in-school support visits will focus on at least one principle included in these documents. Teachers will also be encouraged to trial a ‘task-supported’ approach to their practice.

Course Duration : 9 month programme

Date/Time : 15 February - 20 October 2021
