1 thought on “A Posteriori Syllabus/Krashen”

  1. So if Dr. K’s non-targeted input is the Pure Land, where SLA is optimized, there are still, it seems to me, other ways to deliver CI where Ss acquire & retain real language, albeit with lesson plans and something akin to a Scope & Sequence, containing (for novices at least) hi-freq verb-containing chunks that are flexible, practical and make for great storytelling. Not the Pure Land, but a lot less toxic than Textbook and/or Thematic Unit Land.
    I get that the next frontier is completely on a unicycle with no training wheels, but I still think it’s a giant step for teacher-kind when they abandon the traditional textbook and grammar (and/or theme) -driven approach for collaborative storytelling using the most common sounds combinations and words. There’s a continuum that teachers are on and once we depart from the old fashioned way, hopefully we are on a trajectory toward the Pure Land without ever looking back. That’s definitely progress in the right direction. Embracing & experimenting with a new way is courageous and must be valued and encouraged – we can’t preach all (non-targeted) or nothing or I fear we’ll scare people away.
