3 thoughts on “Lakota – 4”

  1. I have completely felt this force into mental cognition you mentioned above. This year at a new school the other teachers are sooo interested in the students “reading a novel” I think because it makes them feel good. Anyway, I put the first page of the novel up there and as soon as we begin reading, analyzing, figuring out the text, the complete spirit changes and it all of a sudden becomes a test. Totally sucked the spirit out of my class. Next day we went back to interviews and discussing student interest. Also have to say I really don’t like the way those TPRS novels are worded or written. That’s not the way normal people speak!!

  2. Yes. Those novels suck. But the cult of CI community leadership by force of personality is alive and well. Craig if you have time look at the video in the Lakota 1 post here and then read my commentary in the Lakota 4 article. They echo your point above. My fear at this point after 30 years (since Blaine first came out with the method) is that it is becoming a mental exercise as you describe above whereas the research says the opposite! We’re losing the core of CI, or did we ever have it? Schools have put a hurtin’ on Krashen’s work, and he didn’t say anything about it. He let his research devolve under the pressure and transformative effect of what schools are. The result is a shitty kind of CI.
