Someone on FB named Thomas attacked my one pointed focus on Krashen and CI, arguing, like so many other foreign language teachers, for a more eclectic approach.
This is my unapologetic response to him:
Thomas you miss the point. I have been teaching for 38 years and my conclusion is that Dr. Krashen has it down perfectly for me and my students. Why would you attack such a position, one born of thinking and experimenting about this one topic for almost four decades now?
It is so simple – Krashen has provided me with sublime ideas that have allowed me to really enjoy my job and do what I have always wanted to do in my language classroom – be happy. Why would you want to shoot that down?
