Verbal Classrooms 5

Comments

Cruz Demonstrates the basic steps he takes to get students shadow talking. In actuality, while all of this is happening here in English, Cruz most usually gives these instructions in Japanese when dealing with classes of lower motivation and skill levels. Conjugations are a good step to getting Students accustomed to longer MLRs and contrasting negative and positive clauses in compound sentences.

**Demonstrate-Do

**What if nobody volunteers?

–the initial instructions for shadowing is usually taught entirely in Japanese. Teachers find it difficult to be the shadowing “source”, but it’s better and more motivating for students than to shadowing from a recorded source.

–this order of exercises is disjointed. in a regular class there is more of a natural progression based on building on previous skills.
