  • I like the example here. I have only seen PWIM used with very young students and am trying to encourage my teachers of older students that it is great for all ages of English learners. Thank you!

  15. 15. PWIM <ul><li>The PWIM is an inquiry-oriented language arts strategy that uses pictures containing familiar objects and actions to elicit words from children's listening and speaking vocabularies. </li></ul>
  16. 16. PWIM <ul><li>Teachers use the PWIM with classes, small groups, and individuals to lead them into inquiring about words, adding words to their sight-reading and writing vocabularies, discovering phonetic and structural principles, and using observation and analysis in their study of reading, writing, comprehending, and composing. </li></ul>
  17. 17. PWIM <ul><li>The picture word inductive model can be used to teach phonics and spelling both inductively and explicitly. </li></ul><ul><li>The model is designed to capitalize on children's ability to think inductively. </li></ul><ul><li>The PWIM enables them to build generalizations that form the basis of writing structure and phonetic analysis respecting their ability to think. </li></ul>
  18. 18. PWIM <ul><li>Remember: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The full sequence of a PWIM unit may take three days or two months: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The length of units and number of lessons within a unit depend on the richness of the picture, the age and language development of the students, and the language objectives of the teacher. </li></ul></ul></ul>
