SDAIE The Continuum of Strategies
Transcript of SDAIE The Continuum of Strategies
The Continuum of Strategies Teacher -Centered
Instruction. The following video features a classic example of teacher assisted instruction. The teacher herself explains that it was the students who brainstormed about everyday situations in which they need help learning English. They interact with one another often and even share a few laughs., comforting their distressed peer by stating "Experience is the best teacher." The instructor herself was there to monitor the activities. and provided clear
guidelines. Within the following video an ELL professor explains why she favors this method of instruction. She speaks about the pros and cons of its use including the role of culture therein. The role of feedback and cooperation are also addressed. The students in the following video sit passively and
listen while the teacher instructs. They do not interact with one another and only answer questions when called
upon. A classic example of what may be considered traditional teaching. Pros of Teacher-Centered Learning. -Great for native English
-Use of simple diction can aid ELLs
in understanding the lesson. Pros Of Teacher Assisted
Instruction. -Interaction with peers.
-An air of comfort when it comes to asking
-Teacher is always available though not the center of the lesson. Con: No focus on synthesis
of English terms. Pros of peer Assisted
Instruction. - -Students interact and become
comfortable with their peers.
-Students learn from one another and share preexisting knowledge. Student-Centered
Instruction. Within the video the students chose what they wanted to learn and the teacher in turn went from what they already knew. so they could synthesize. Pros of Student Centered
Instruction. -Students communicate with one another
-Students choose what they want to learn about the topic. Con: -Lack of Scaffolding and support. References: TESL series- Learner centered teaching. (2011) [Video] KansaiGene.

Student Centered ESL Video Project. (2012) [video] Avi Spector. Conclusion There are a number of instructional methods a teacher
could employ to aid ELL students from allowing the students themselves to choose what they learn about English to simply having them learn from their peers. Whatever methods are chosen, a teacher must always have the SDAIE characteristics and the needs of the students themselves in mind when planning a lesson for ELLs.
