Kcc language experience

  1. 1. Language Experience Marissa Martian and Co!een Matosof Fa! 2010
  2. 2. An Example of a LE Story
  3. 3. What needs does LE address? Needs direct instruction in ASL Needs to express personal needs/wants in ASL Needs to explain an event or experience with appropriate ASL Needs to communicate in writing needs and wants Needs functional living skills
  4. 4. The Big Picture Language Experience to ASL Composition to Written English LE helps students with limited language express a common experience through ASL (ASL Composition) which can be translated into written English. Students are working at the challenging level of literacy, and require adult support.
  5. 5. What is Language Experience? An approach to reading and expressive language instruction based on activities and stories developed from personal experiences of the learner. The stories about personal experiences are written down/ signed by a teacher and read/viewed together until the learner associates the written form of the word with the spoken. Consists of student initiated projects that result in a written product at the challenging level.
  6. 6. Language Experience Models the thinking and writing process Develops writing skills and/or expressive ASL skills Introduces different writing/ASL genres Demonstrates writing conventions and ASL grammar Promotes re-reading / re-viewing Teaches writing/composing for a purpose and an audience
  7. 7. Benefits of LE It brings together writing, reading, art/technology, and language. It helps learners make connections to printed English or composed American Sign Language. It is learner-centered It provides predictable reading material because it uses the learners' natural language.
  8. 8. LE Process Students initiate the experience Students and teachers document the experience through pictures, video, or notes Teacher translates the students’ sign language into written English Ask students to sign what they are thinking Adult acts as a scribe Adult signs back what is written Students and teachers use the text for reading instruction Adult thinks along (models) the process Students contribute to the graphics
  9. 9. Using ASL for LE ASL is the natural language so is most appropriate as the target language goal. Written English may or may not be the primary component, depending on the purpose. Appropriate ASL is modeled and emphasized as part of the ASL composition process. Students have viewing opportunities Students create ASL literature
  10. 10. LE Process Experience Discussion Pictures and modeled ASL are used Events are sequenced and recapped Student choose pictures of interest for composing. Students follow ASL composition guidelines before publishing their work. ASL published work can be the final project goal or a series of mini lessons can begin related to English vocabulary development and reading.
  11. 11. ASL Composition Comparable to a writing assignment students compose in American Sign Language. Students follow a ASL composition rubric Students are given opportunities to learn using their natural language. Students are exposed to an environment where ASL is valued
