Individualised Learning and the Communicative Approach in the LOTE Classroom.
Cincotta, Madeleine Strong
A number of second language class activities are presented that stimulate interpersonal interaction and develop communication skills. The exercises are also designed to accommodate learners' different learning styles, pacing needs, skill levels, and course content. They include: a questionnaire activity in which students must discover facts about classmates; descriptions of drawings; picture completion using pairs or trios of students; and "matchmaking." Using individualized lesson plans and offering students a number of activity options from which to choose are also suggested. An individualized lesson plan form is appended. (MSE)
