4 thoughts on “Mixing”

  1. I would like to hear what others have to say about this as well. I teach Spanish I in eighth grade and students will be going into a more traditional Spanish 2 class in high school, so I would love to hear from people with experience in this type of situation.

  2. By no means am I an expert on blending traditional and CI, but I use the Standard Deviants DVD’s in very short bursts from time to time for grammar. I think there are clips of some on youtube. I have to present grammar to some extent because of the way our school schedules classes, some students will take online/correspondence courses for a semester or two and transition in and out of my classes. I also have students out on extended medical, so I have links on my class website to the studyspanish dot com site, as well as links to online conjugators.

  3. I just want to clarify my own reply. My first experience with teaching grammar only in context was with the reflexive last spring. I was amazed that they ‘got it’ better than previous years with numerous workbook activities that accompanied the text. That convinced me that I had really wasted a ridiculous amount of time trying to pound home grammar with those hated worksheets. Now I am a believer in the importance of context and the ‘pop up’ minimal explanation. However, because of the situations outlined above, I offer the online grammar links for reference purposes.
