  • Non Linguistic Representation

    1. 1. Non-Linguistic Representation Portsmouth Public Schools TEACH Academy June 2009
    2. 2. What is non-linguistic representation? <ul><li>It is an imagery mode of representation </li></ul><ul><li>The imagery mode is expressed as mental pictures and physical sensations such as: </li></ul><ul><li>smell </li></ul><ul><li>taste </li></ul><ul><li>touch </li></ul><ul><li>kinesthetic association </li></ul><ul><li>sound </li></ul>
    3. 3. The “dual-coding” theory of information storage agrees that knowledge is stored in two forms: — linguistic (words) and imagery (mental pictures).
    4. 4. <ul><li>The more we use both systems of representation the better we are able to think about and recall knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>This is particularly important in the classroom because linguistically is the primary method of presenting knowledge in the classroom </li></ul><ul><li>We either talk to students about content or they read about new content </li></ul><ul><li>This means students are left to generate their own nonlinguistic representations </li></ul>Use Both
    5. 5. Classroom Practice in Non-linguistic Representations Graphic Organizers are the most common way to help students generate nonlinguistic representations Graphic Organizers combine the linguistic mode in that they use words and phrases and the nonlinguistic mode in that they use symbols and arrows to represent relationships
    6. 6. <ul><li>Create graphic organizers </li></ul><ul><li>Descriptive Patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Time-Sequence Patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Process/Cause-Effect Patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Episode Patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Generalization/Principle Patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Concept Patterns </li></ul>Templates open with Word
    7. 7. Descriptive Pattern <ul><li>Descriptive Patterns can be used to represent facts about specific people, places, things and events </li></ul><ul><li>This information does not have to be in any specific order </li></ul>
    8. 8. Descriptive Pattern Example
    9. 9. Time Sequence Pattern <ul><li>Time sequence patterns organize events in a specific chronological order </li></ul><ul><li>For example, the events leading up to the Vietnam War can be shown in a time sequence pattern organizer </li></ul>
    10. 10. Process/Cause-Effect Pattern <ul><li>Process/Cause-Effect Patterns organize information into a casual network leading to a specific outcome </li></ul><ul><li>An example would be study habits that make a good student </li></ul>
    11. 11. Episode Pattern <ul><li>Episode Pattern Organizers arrange data about specific events including: </li></ul><ul><li>Setting (time and place) </li></ul><ul><li>Specific People </li></ul><ul><li>A specific duration </li></ul><ul><li>A specific sequence of events </li></ul><ul><li>A particular cause and effect </li></ul>An Example would be information leading up to the Civil War
    12. 12. Episode Pattern An Example would be information leading up to the Civil War
    13. 13. Generalization/Principle Patterns <ul><li>Generalization/Principle Patterns organize information into general statements with supporting details. </li></ul><ul><li>An Example would be statements supporting a hypothesis that economic conditions were the cause of the Civil War. </li></ul>
    14. 14. Concept Pattern <ul><li>Concept Patterns organize information around a word or phrase that represents entire classes or categories of people, places things or events </li></ul><ul><li>The characteristics or attributes of the concept along with examples of each should be included in this example. </li></ul><ul><li>An example would be a teacher asking a student to show the concept of fables along with examples and characteristics of them. </li></ul>
    15. 15. Concept Pattern A Concept Pattern could look like this
    16. 16. <ul><li>Using other </li></ul><ul><li>Nonlinguistic Representations </li></ul><ul><li>Making physical models </li></ul><ul><li>Generating mental pictures </li></ul><ul><li>Drawing pictures and pictographs </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging in kinesthetic activity </li></ul>
    17. 17. Inspiration® Many templates are available within the Inspiration® software. Go to File —> Open template, then choose the subject area and topic. Templates within Inspiration have directions about ways in which you might use the tool in the classroom. Webspiration —online version of Inspiration Inspiration —website with standards match
