  1. Mila, please keep us updated on how this works out. Information on how this works out can really help a lot of teachers.
    I think the textbook portion of the class could also have some CI slipped into it, no?
    For example, ordering activities, true false, maybe write sentences to practice verb conjugations but which have sentences about the OWI’s and Invisible characters?

  2. I agree that you can pop in some CI into a grammar class. However, it would be boring and make us work too hard. The beauty of teaching a grammar class for half the period is that you don’t have to put out any effort.
    The way I understand the research is that it is long and uninterrupted periods of CI that create what Krashen calls the “din” of language that leads to true acquisition. I don’t think it is really CI if it is constantly broken up with the L1.
    I don’t think that teachers respect that need for CI to be in bulk delivery packages of at least fifteen minutes at a time for it to really be what Krashen defines as CI. That’s just my opinion, though.
