  1. I would add to this a strategy that I mentioned elsewhere, that is, pointing out that CI based instruction is in line with both the ACTFL standards and the school’s mission statement. The implication (which you may not even have to say out loud) is that to teach in the old way is not only out of line in terms of the standards, but also goes against notions of inclusiveness, access, diversity, accomodating all kinds of learners, honoring childhood through age-appropriate pedagogy, cultivating a school community, making use of the latest child-development research, and all the other similar phrases which show up in school mission statements. Many administrators may not even know the school’s mission statement. This would be a teachable moment, and it would be difficult to argue against a teacher who has the school’s mission statement on his/her side.

  2. I just copied it to put into my arsenal for future occasions where I might have to take a certain supervisor to school =) So yes. Very helpful! I especially love the part about acquisition being about developing “instincts”. So many language teachers want to shove vocab down kids’ throats –especially in an academic environment that is all about data, testing, and measurement–so this is a super important point to make.
