Culturally, Linguistically, and Cognitively Diverse Learners and Brain-Compatible Content Based Teaching
Haley, Marjorie Hall
Learning Languages, v12 n2 p4-7 Spr 2007
As a teacher educator in a large public university, the author's methods courses are frequently comprised of both pre- and in-service teachers who are, or will be, working with culturally, linguistically, and cognitively diverse (CLCD) early language learners. It is incumbent upon the author to equip them with skills, strategies, and a sound theoretical framework so they can create and execute instructional strategies and assessment practices that reach all learners. This article focuses on examining brain-compatible content-based language teaching with CLCD learners. To help early language teachers, the focus is on: 1) building on the strengths of multiple intelligences; 2) the Multiple Intelligence (MI) Survey for grades 3 - 6; and 3) the Brain-Compatible, Content-Based Planning Grid for Early Language Learners. (Contains 3 endnotes.)
