Ines Showcase Presentation

  1. 2. Ines Cilmi <ul><li>School: Lalor East P.S. </li></ul><ul><li>Language: Italian </li></ul><ul><li>Year Level Grade 5/6 </li></ul>
  2. 3. Context <ul><li>The aim of my investigation was to demonstrate to students that learning a second language and in particular Italian can enhance and support English literacy. </li></ul><ul><li>I also wanted to highlight the fact that this year is the International Year of Languages. </li></ul>
  3. 4. What did you do? <ul><li>To highlight the International Year of languages I made a display which consisted of different language alphabets. </li></ul><ul><li>I researched foreign words that are commonly used in English. </li></ul><ul><li>Before beginning formal lessons students were taken to see the display. This gave the students the opportunity to observe, discuss and make comment. </li></ul>
  4. 7. Classroom Practice. <ul><li>Session.1. In pairs or groups of 3 students looked at supermarket catalogues and searched for words that they thought came from other languages </li></ul><ul><li>Students reported their findings to the class, These were listed, discussed and classified. </li></ul>
  5. 8. <ul><li>Session.2/3. Students compared two different supermarket catalogues and recorded their findings on a teacher prepared worksheet. Students made statements on their findings. </li></ul><ul><li>Session.4. Students were given a choice of tasks to record their findings. </li></ul>
  6. 15. What did you learn? <ul><li>I found that students were engaged and a great deal of talk and discussion took place. </li></ul><ul><li>Students were keen to share their knowledge of their own mother tongue. Students were proud to share their knowledge and I sensed a great deal of satisfaction and self worth in that they felt that their culture and knowledge actually had relevance to the English language. </li></ul><ul><li>I realized that students did not have a good understanding of how the English language works and the influence of other languages. </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that students who have another language coped with the activity a lot easier. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to focus some of our language activities to show relevance to our day to day life, make activities relevant to real situations. </li></ul>
  7. 16. Showcase Presentation Instructions <ul><li>Please bring this Powerpoint to Day 4 saved on a USB stick </li></ul><ul><li>If possible, please bring your own laptop </li></ul><ul><li>Customise the pages to reflect your investigation – maybe try some photos from </li></ul><ul><li>The presentation only needs to be 5 minutes long to allow 5 minutes for questions </li></ul>
