CONFESSION: I don’t like being prescriptive. I completely understand the need to follow a recipe especially when you begin your journey but I hesitate to provide a “one size fit all” recipe. There are so many ways to cook a delicious meal!
— I am talking about language acquisition here 🙂
Yet, so many teachers have been asking “what do I do?” and “how do I keep it interesting?”, that I decided to document my “curriculum” in a way that is shareable.
Based on my 10+year journey in many different school settings, this is my attempt at balancing what I have learned about language acquisition, what I have seen in my own classrooms, what I am good at, and the feed back I have collected from my students and my peers year after year. Yet, it is not set in stone and continues living and breathing as I meet and get to grow with new unique students every year.
