Ultimate CI Book 1 Online Training Course

Group 7 | Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. | Starts May 29, 2021

The online Zoom training course supports Book 1. When you sign up for the training, a free copy of the Ultimate CI Book 1 is sent to you.
 
All attendees receive a Professional Development Certification of Completion for 12 Hours of World Language Instruction Training.
 
This beginner-friendly online training program of the Ultimate CI Book 1 covers everything in the first Ultimate CI Book and provides enough material to keep your online and in-class students engaged through their entire Level 1 language instruction.
 
This online class is the pre-requisite to the Book 2 advanced class.
 
If you have already attended the Book 1 class previously and would like to take the course again, please contact me and you can take the Book 1 class again for free!
 
Refer to the curved yellow bars on the Star Sequence chart in Book 1 to see exactly what is covered in Module A. Here is the syllabus:

If you can before the first class, attend to these four things:

(1) I’m asking everyone to do some reading before the first class. (The entire six-weeks syllabus is found on my website.)

Class 1, Saturday – 5.29.21 (12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time) 

(1) Do the following reading in the Ultimate CI Book 1 (pink cover). (The book is sent out automatically once you’ve signed up for the training.)

1. Read pp. 7-17

2. Read pp. 18-19 (optional)

3. Read pp, 48-55

(2) Go to the following YouTube links and watch at least a few of them each week and try to get them all viewed by the end of Training Week 3 You will be glad you watched them. Try to notice how what is explained in the book matches up with what these teachers are doing in the videos. Eventually, it is exactly what you will be doing in your classrooms.

Sample Video 1 (Card Talk, French)

Sample Video 2 (Card Talk, Spanish) 

Sample Video 3 (Card Talk, Russian) 

Sample Video 4 (Card Talk, German) 

Sample Video 5 (Card Talk, German) 

Sample Video 6 (Card Talk, Spanish) 

(3) Have a piece of card stock and a marker of any kind ready at the beginning of class on Sat.

(4) If you notice in the videos, the teachers (Victoria, Jesus, me, Marko, Carl, Yvonne etc.) in each of our videos have set up a very simple little “space” for teaching online. You will need, ideally, a whiteboard behind you (like in the videos) or, failing that, a portable one that you can handle during class (Victoria does this quite effectively). The tripod whiteboard is ideal. You’ll also need a set of the question words in English. (No need to set up your little “teaching space” right now. It can be done later and if you don’t intend to “work” (i.e. get coached in class) you won’t need to build this little space at all.

(5) This class will demo a full journey around the Star (45-90 min.) followed by a Q and A discussion from questions raised in the Chat. If time remains: coaching.
Class 2 – Saturday – 6.05.21 (12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time) –
  1. Read pp, 19-48
  2. Read pp. 58-66
  3. Continue on with more videos. Again, try to follow the predictable questioning level process as it unfolds in each video you watch. The road to your success is paved with those questioning levels and with the five phases of the Star.
  4. This class will demo and discuss the Create and Review phases of the Star, followed by a Q and A discussion from questions raised in the Chat. If time remains: coaching.
Class 3 – Saturday – 6.12.21 (12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time) –Demo and Coaching. 
  1. Review pp. 17-66
  2. Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xMrqOeQPiY&t=502s
  3. This class will demo and discuss the Write, Review and Extend phases of the Star, followed by a Q and A discussion from questions raised in the Chat. If time remains: coaching.
Class 4 –  Demo and Coaching. Saturday – 6.19.21 (12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time) –
Demo in Spanish by Jesús Horacio Báez Ávila

  1. Tanya Foster

    This training course is Amazing. Ben takes his time and make sure that you understand the information. He will not move on unless he knows that everyone is on the same page. I learned so much and feel much more confident to use comprehensible input in my classroom. I am thankful for this training. – Tanya

  2. Amy Pierce

    So much fun! You need the book and the class to get the maximum CI experience. Ben is fun and funny. Sign up for the course, read your homework in advance, and get ready to work. You Really can teach with CI—Ben will walk you through it.

    • Ben Slavic

      Thanks for the plug Amy. I agree. We can do CI. It only took me 20 years to un-peel the CI onion. I will send you the latest versions of the books since you have the ones from last summer. Each new class has taught me more and more about the Star, but you and your summer group taught me the most, so thank you! I hope the Star is working well for you. You worked so hard this past year – I hope it’s all smoothing out now.

  3. Jesús Horacio Báez

    I highly recommend all the materials and courses created by Mr. Slavic. Any teacher, regardless of their experience or professional background, will benefit from Ben’s approach to teaching with Comprehensible Input. Believe me, you won’t want to do something different once you get to know the star.
