Welcome to aim language learning Welcome to aim language learning Presentation Transcript

  • WELCOME TO AIM LANGUAGE LEARNING
    The Accelerative Integrated Method
  • Introduction
    Wendy Maxwell the innovator
    The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education
    Drama in Education
    The Third International Conference on Drama in English Language Teaching – held in Tainan, Taiwan, 2008
  • AIM IS DRAMA AND STORY BASED
    Stories compel more than topics or themes
    The contexts and emotional elements supplied by stories encourages retention of language
    Language in AIM is corpus based: most frequent words are used first and then repeated often in a natural context
    Vocabulary is scaffolded: repeated often and reviewed and then more is added
    Grammar is introduced in a real world way: structures are offfered as needed for the story and practiced until the grammar is internalized (inductive method)

  • AIM
    Kinesthetic, VISUAL, and Aural learning
    Each word is associated with a gesture
    The gesture illustrates the meaning of the word
    This is sometimes linked to TPR (Total Physical Response)
    The class practices the pronunciation of the words as they gesture
    The words and gestures are taught in meaningful chunks

  • Vocabulary based on drama/story
    ALLOWS VOCABULARY TO BE EXPERIENCED IN DEPTH
    ALLOWS LANGUAGE TO BE MANIPULATED TO CREATE NEW SENTENCES AND EXPRESS IDEAS
    ALLOWS STUDENTS TO SPEAK MOST OF THE CLASS TIME
    ALLOWS THE CLASS TO BE CONDUCTED IN L2 FROM DAY ONE !!
  • THE PLAY CONSTRUCTS THE LANGUAGE
    AS STUDENTS MEMORIZE THE TEXT TO THE PLAY, THEY INTERNALIZE THE VOCABULARY, THE GRAMMAR, AND USE WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED TO WORK TOGETHER
    STUDENTS LEARN LANGUAGE THROUGH PERFORMING RAPS, CREATING AND MOVING TO DANCE AND THE MOVEMENT PERFORMING THE PLAY
    GRAMMAR IS LEARNED THROUGH RAPS (GRAMMAR RAPS)
    MOVEMENT, GESTURE, SONG, EMOTION, AND MEANING PRODUCES MEANINGFUL
