  • Hi I am [speak slowly]# I am really excited to me here today blah blah
  • Suzi Bewell Creativity and Phonics Presentation (York Uni ITTs Fri 29th May 2009)

    1. 1. Creativity and (French) Phonics Suzi Bewell
    2. 2. <ul><li>“ An army destined to defeat fights in the hope of winning but without any planning ” </li></ul>The Wise Warrior Battleground Enemy Strategy
    3. 3. The Battle Ground: Know the enemy and know yourself <ul><li>Year 11 Speaking Exams: </li></ul><ul><li>Unmotivated and disengaged </li></ul><ul><li>Unable to process and manipulate the language </li></ul><ul><li>Severe absence of skills and ambition to become independent learners </li></ul>
    4. 4. The Enemy; What the pupils say <ul><li>“ I can’t spell much French”; </li></ul><ul><li>“ 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”; </li></ul><ul><li>“ It sounds different to how it’s spelled and it’s said really quickly”; </li></ul><ul><li>“ It’s hard to pronounce… I never know how to pronounce it!”; </li></ul><ul><li>“ I forget pronunciation and struggle” </li></ul>
    5. 5. The key to success in war – the need for an effective strategy. <ul><li>The old strategy… </li></ul><ul><li>“ 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.” </li></ul><ul><li>*Listen to “Regarde-moi papa” version 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Now consider the following… </li></ul><ul><li>Jem – Je mapple – Ongleterre – poison rouge </li></ul><ul><li>lapIN – Habite – leS mathS – famILLE - QUart </li></ul>
    6. 6. Words from the Warriors <ul><li>“ How many times do students learn something by heart and it sounds dreadful ?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I usually just teach it as things crop up . ” </li></ul><ul><li>“ 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” </li></ul><ul><li>“ As far as phonics are concerned, Rachel Hawkes is the only person I have come across who is into them, which is mad really!” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I feel it would be more useful to come with a knowledge of certain sounds rather than knowing about the weather or pets “ </li></ul>
    7. 7. The key to success in war – the need for an effective s trategy. <ul><li>…and the new… </li></ul><ul><li>“ 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?” </li></ul>
    8. 8. “ To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence ” <ul><li>Using le manuel phonique, Jolly Phonique: </li></ul><ul><li>teach 36 principal sounds; </li></ul><ul><li>stress sound-spelling links; </li></ul><ul><li>tease out structures and rules; </li></ul><ul><li>deal with cognates and “tricky words” </li></ul>
    9. 9. “ You cannot change your enemy, so change your responses “ <ul><li>Pupil-led teaching and learning </li></ul><ul><li>Active learning </li></ul><ul><li>Creative teaching </li></ul>
    10. 10. POWER OF STUDENT VOICE <ul><li>Ask them what they like </li></ul><ul><li>*Ask them what they don’t like / find hard </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them what they would like to learn </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them how they would like to learn </li></ul><ul><li>ACT ON THIS INFORMATION AND MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES </li></ul>
