The binder that we create in class is one of the most valuable resources to a student.
We build notes and vocabulary lists as well as keep track of quizzes, homework, and classwork.
This resource will help them complete their homework and study for assessments.
The binder is the one resource that will travel with them from year to year and even college.
Thank you! I am happy to be teaching your student this year. I'm looking forward to a great year!
Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
Learning Another Language
It's a skill
Acquiring a language is learning a skill, not a body of information. It's as much like learning to swim or ride a bike as it is like learning about the Revolutionary War. That is, you must not only understand the ideas and concepts, have information at hand, but you must also make your body accustomed to using that information in physical activity: in this case the physical activity involved is speaking, listening, writing and reading.
You need, then, not only to memorize and understand, but also to practice, and practice it correctly!
Make your mouth or hand do what your mind is learning
Study out loud alone or with a friend using correct Spanish phonetics and pronunciation.
Try to write sentences or a short paragraph using the skills you have practiced orally.
If you study out loud, you double your efficiency by adding auditory memory and you make your mouth work, helping with pronunciation and speech.
Augment your learning potential even further by writing what you have read and spoken.
You cannot get by in a foreign language course by cramming at the last minute.
You may be able to 'learn' vocabulary items that way, but you cannot teach your mouth to use them in sentences and certainly not learn them long-term.
Can you cram for a swim meet or a piano recital?
Language learning is
You learn new skills on the basis of old ones.
Occasionally on your own go back and review 'old' topics and vocabulary.
The more you 'recycle' familiar information and skills, the better you will be able to integrate new ones.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes
Self-consciousness can be a mighty obstacle to learning a language.
We visit the language lab every week.
Perhaps part of the reason small children readily acquire languages is that they are not afraid of making mistakes: their egos do not restrain them from acting like 'little clowns'.
