It’s too late to join this session, but let Terry know if you’re interested in a later time

Take your new skills into the classroom with an easy CI-based input technique that provides almost limitless possibilities!

So you get that language is acquired, not learned, and you’ve been practicing your circling until you’re smooth and confident…well, pretty much anyway. What’s the logical next step to bring all this comprehensible goodness to your students?

PictureTalk is one of the easiest ways to implement Comprehensible Input. Choose an interesting image and apply a few simple techniques, and you’ll be providing high-quality comprehensible input for your students AND be laying a solid foundation for going on to other input techniques.

This webinar is given in two one-hour sessions. It explores the Input Cycle and discusses how PictureTalk works. We’ll look at some possible images and brainstorm language we might want to input using different images, depending on the level and ages of our students. Then participants will have two weeks to find a picture, decide on some language and give it a try with their own students. We’ll meet back and debrief about our experiences, share the good and the difficult, and come away with ideas for follow-up activities or homework (gasp!).

This is a LIVE webinar limited to five participants to ensure individual attention to everyone’s questions and challenges. It may be recorded and shown to others in the future, so please do not register if you are not comfortable with that possibility.

Participants will receive instructions for how to join the webinar a few days prior to its start date. To get the most out of the session, it is best to have a wired Internet connection and a working video camera, though wireless will work (you may experience some cutout of sound or video). You may wish to use earbuds or headphones to avoid sound feedback.
