Sketching to Create Meaning: The Story of a Second-Language Learner
Altman, Chris
English Journal, v97 n5 p64-68 May 2008
Chris Altman stresses the importance of helping English language learners ascertain the medium they best work with in interpreting information presented in class. Altman reminds us that meaning does not come directly from teachers giving students information, but from students productively making meaning and clarifying understanding through a variety of mediums.
