  • Transcript

    • 1. A strategy for teaching French Phonics Suzi Bewell
    • 2.
      • “ An army destined to defeat fights in the hope of winning but without any planning ”
      The Wise Warrior Battleground Enemy Strategy
    • 3. The Battle Ground: Know the enemy and know yourself
      • Year 11 Speaking Exams:
      • Unmotivated and disengaged
      • Unable to process and manipulate the language
      • Severe absence of skills and ambition to become independent learners
    • 4. The Enemy; What the pupils say
      • “ I can’t spell much French”;
      • “ It’s hard to remember where the accents go and how to spell the words – like silent letters and how to pronounce it differently to how you write it”;
      • “ It sounds different to how it’s spelled and it’s said really quickly”;
      • “ It’s hard to pronounce… I never know how to pronounce it!”;
      • “ I forget pronunciation and struggle”
    • 5. The key to success in war – the need for an effective strategy.
      • The old strategy…
      • “ In the early stages of learning, the written form of the language can strongly interfere with pronunciation…learners need ample opportunities to listen and respond before the written forms are involved.”
    • 6. Words from the Warriors
      • “ How many times do students learn something by heart and it sounds dreadful ?”
      • “ I usually just teach it as things crop up . ”
      • “ I don't really teach phonics . I mean, I think I teach students how to pronounce the French language but I don't think I ‘actively’ teach it”
      • “ As far as phonics are concerned, Rachel Hawkes is the only person I have come across who is into them, which is mad really!”
      • “ I feel it would be more useful to come with a knowledge of certain sounds rather than knowing about the weather or pets “
    • 7. The key to success in war – the need for an effective s trategy.
      • …and the new…
      • “ Children do not arrive at primary magically knowing how to read English, they are taught ; why do we  imagine they will learn to read another language if we do not teach the children the “ code ” first?”
    • 8. “ To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence ”
      • Using le manuel phonique, Jolly Phonique:
      • teach 36 principal sounds;
      • stress sound-spelling links;
      • tease out structures and rules;
      • deal with cognates and “tricky words”
    • 9. “ You cannot change your enemy, so change your responses “
      • Pupil-led
      • Relevant technology
      • Active learning – the need for challenge
      • Cognitive memory techniques
    • 10. The battle continues
      • Principle 1: ‘Do once and share’
        • Providing Inset locally
        • Sharing with Schools regionally
        • Teacher access to resources (inter)nationally
      • Principle 2: Continual development
        • Through an international teacher exchange
        • A wiki for sharing and collaboration
        • *With Routes into Languages (University of Hull) for Key Stage 4
