  1. The parent is truly confused, but there is a slight inference that this teacher is wrong. That’s why we have all these posts here from over the years. The response from Robert above is just an example. The three places to look here for other sample responses to parents or admins when this sort of thing raises its ugly head are:

    (1) Primer hard link above. Robert and Nathaniel Hardt have written the best articles.
    (2) “Administrator/Teacher/Parent Re-education” category on the right side of this page.
    (3) “When Attacked” category.

  2. Thanks for sharing, I actually took this answer to to get ideas to assign meaningful homework to my students. I added one: Add Spanish in your language options in your smartphone and try to text a friend using only Spanish. This also allows dictation.

  3. This is an excellent option since the kids are so attached to their phones. The only caution that I see is to do this only with upper levels, since the younger kids are not ready to output naturally at that levels. Of course, some kids will try it and that is great, but the idea here is for the kids to wait until the texting output almost flies out of their fingers, to paraphrase what we all learned from Susan Gross, that speech output should just naturally “fall out of their mouths” (because the key thing in all output is that there has to have been enough (listening and reading) comprehensible input before any form of (writing and speaking) output can occur. When Krashen meant natural, he meant no thinking.
