What It Means to Be an Immersion Teacher. Teacher's Activity Manual.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD. Office of Instruction and Program Development.
The purpose of this manual, which accompanies a video program, is to provide an overview of four immersion teacher tasks for elementary foreign language teachers who are, or soon will be, teaching in a total or partial immersion classroom. Part of a series of video programs, this manual is intended to provide basic information, models, and examples that will assist teachers in the daily application of this information to content instruction in elementary immersion classrooms. The four tasks described (planning for instruction, delivery of instruction, evaluation of students' progress, and communication with school personnel and parents) reflect observations and experiences of immersion teachers, program coordinators, administrators, and researchers combined with knowledge gained from second language acquisition theory. This video program has been designed to be viewed in sections and is not intended to be viewed from beginning to end in one sitting. It may be used by teacher trainers as a component of immersion teacher training programs or as an independent study program by individual teachers who have limited access to immersion training opportunities.
