Thursday's class

Hello everyone!

Yesterday we had classes... we finished discussing SLA (each of the four groups from the previous class briefly presented a model). Later, we started dealing with Learning Styles: we mentioned what they are, what they depend on and the most common classifications. We described the most important characteristics of the three modalities (we did a quiz and classified various study strategies), of hemispheric dominance and of field dependence and field independence.

Next class we will continue dealing with learning styles and personality factors. We will also start working on mistakes and feedback.

Finally, I gave back the essays on FLA, which you have to post on your blog together with some images/ videos/ links....

A new class...

Hi there!!

Yesterday we (finally!!!) had another class. We dealt with SLA, mentioning all the factors that have to be taken into consideration when studying the issue.

Next class we will start with a 20 minute activity to round the topic off. Then we will deal with Personality Factors and Learning Styles, so you have to read chapter 8 by Cook and chapters 5 and 6 by Brown (the first three chapters in the second bunch).

Bear in mind the schedule for the next few weeks:

  • 25/09 learning styles and personality factors
  • 02/10 mistakes and feedback 
  • 09/10 we start with the presentations.
Evaluation and Needs Analysis you will have to read on your own. These topics will not be included in the term test, but I will give you some assignment.
