    Sometimes the opportunities come unexpectedly, and we need to be ready to seize them appropriately. Today following our department collaboration, two of the Spanish teachers were talking, and one of them was complaining about students not knowing the difference between preterit and imperfect, no matter how much she worked with them. Instead of talking about Comprehensible Input, I just offered the suggestion/asked the question, “So if what you are doing isn’t working, do you think you should continue doing it?” Later she came to me and asked about how I assess. First I showed her the Interpersonal Communication Rubric. Then I showed her a six-panel storyboard that my level one students had just done for a chapter in “Arme Anna” as practice (This is the Essential Sentences with pictures idea.) and explained how it worked. She was very interested – obviously not yet ready to adopt TPRS/TCI but at least more open than she has been in the past.

  2. I found out yesterday in a meeting with my department chair and Principal that years of talking about research is a joke to them. They don’t actually read it. If or when they do read it they do not fully grasp it. Krashen himself shared this today on the morelist…it was great.
    What I found to be the jackpot moneyball slam dunk was to stick to the talking point of ACTFLs 90% TL usage. This is ALL we need to stick to with narrow-minded thinkers. Mentioning research or TPRS or SLA gurus falls on deaf hears and comes off the wrong way in my experience. The discussion turn to the criticisms of research and the TPRS cult just wanting to make money and the like.
    Let’s talk about ACTFL and 90% TL and see who has better teaching and learning results!
