Approaches and Methodologies
1 Grammatical
1.1 outdated “historical artifact”
1.1.1 Teacher centered emphasis on the rules and structure of target language Isolated sentences to complex texts Grammar-translation More emphasis on development of reading writing and grammar. Became popular in the nineteenth century memorization of rules and vocabulary lists Less emphasis on oral language development. Direct Focus on total immersion in L2: Sink or Swim No use of L1 allowed in the classroom Involves an open ended response to materials the teacher brings into the classroom. Audiolingual Grammar structures are carefully sequenced and taught. Minimal use of L1. Emphasizes error correction drills and repetitive practice designed to develope particular language structures Memorization and recall that become habbit Some importance on context through objects, photos, diagrams, and drawings. Dialog taught in context; exposure was key Teacher model; student practice Originated in late nineteenth century Direct method: teachers model, students practice less on explicit instruction more on repetition and memorization Dialogue memorization. Repetition. Mnemonics. Kinetics Used by troops in WW2 learning experiences must emphasize the explicit teaching of grammar Rule based instruction
2 Communicative
2.1.1 Emerged in the 1960s Due to concerns with the effectiveness of grammatical method
2.1.2 Learning through communication, constructivism, and social interaction
2.1.3 Student-centered emphasis on communication and meaningful acquisition of knowledge Silent Way Teacher does the talking and doing: All L2 not L1 Emphasis on pronunciation and word flow Simple linguistic situations: observe and describe Natural way Stresses comprehensible input. Comprehension proceeds production language progression emerges in stages. Communicative goals should guide instruction Suggestopedia Emphasis on relaxed physical setting: No Fear Visual aides to support meaning with L1 explanations of test, working with text through role play, conversation, and retelling Not necessarily content-based Integrated content-based Emphasizes L2 development. Based on Academic & Linguistic needs including grade level collaboration across subject areas Subject are content integrated into themed units Sheltered instruction Modified for grade level or second language classroom as they have integrated language and content objectives aligned with curriculum and best practice standards for CDL students Scaffold grade level instruction with hands on applications/ modified grade-level content Visuals, coop. learning, & guarded vocabulary Sheltered instruction method Scaffolding. Guarded vocabulary. Cooperative learning. Hands-on activities Reduced use of idioms. Manipulative and realia. Simulations / big books. Heterogenious grouping Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol-SIOP Should be designed to lower the affective filter Referred to as the Natural Approach learner developed own criteria for quality of speaking, listening, and correction. research and theory based approach Interpersonal interaction leads to language acquisition Language Acquisition Device
3 Cognitive
3.1.1 Origins in 1980s and 90s research Concerned with the structure and nature of complex knowledge processes (discovering recognizing, conceiving, judging, reasoning, and reflecting) Learning as knowledge construction
3.1.2 Learner-centered focus on explicit teaching of learning strategies (LS) in communicative ways CALLA Developmentally appropriate language instruction with focus on prior knowledge Intentional focused on CALP development in l1 and l2 as related to content areas: emphasis on academic language. Explicit instruction in the metacognitive learning strategy, the cognitive learning strategy, and the social or affective learning strategy Content is introduced and scaffolded with contextual supports and reduced linguistic demands Explicit instruction that targets both content and language acquisition CALLA method cooperative learning. Explicit LS instruction. Maximizing content and language objectives KWL chart. Questioning. Word walls. Outlines Interactively variable Piaget; Gazzaniga; Edelman; Oxford; Chamot; O'Malley; Hakuta; Bialystok In this method the learner expands what he knows by adding new information to prior knowledge. This is an example of active learning. It’s a complex dance between declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge, and conditional knowledge that eventually allows us to process that in our environment and learn from it. Johnson argued that declarative and procedural were the two most important processes for automatization, or the restructuring of large amounts of information. In this model the student is self-aware of his learning, what he wants to achieve, and the techniques to get him there. Relating known concepts to known information in order to facilitate learning.

4 History
4.1 Dates back to Mesopotamia
4.1.1 Most prevalent in the Middle Ages, the 18th, the 19th, and 1st half of the 20th centuries
4.4 Charateristics
4.4.4 Methods Strategies: Examples from... Techniques Perspectives on Human Developments Fixed/ Staged/ Predictable Locke; Hume; Watson; Skinner; Palmer; Fries; Oller; Obrecht This approach, though used for many many years essentially fails in offering the best options of instruction. Rather than teaching students how to use a language it focused on teaching about the language. This is how I felt in my high school Spanish class when we would spend weeks on conjugating verbs. This method does not provide students with comprehensible input, and research has shown that students that are educated in this manner do worse on standardized tests. This method doesn't work well and is outdated. Typically staged but environmentally variable Vygotsky; Bakhtin; Brunner; Ansubel; Papert; Krashen; Terrell; Echevarria; Vogt; Short This approach places a major emphasis on communication and stresses that it is the primary objective in learning, which makes sense. Why are we learning a new language except to communicate with it? The theoretical foundation for this approach is constructivism. Believing that people are born with certain abilities to comprehend, construct, and produce language, theorists argued that learning took place through interactions between the learner’s mind and his environment. Learners do not require explicit instruction but rather the environment in which they can socially interact with others and therefore construct the language for themselves Researchers/ Theorists Summary
