Introduction and Background:
In-put Charts are really amusing to teach, and students look forward to these lectures. The included lecture notes are easy to follow, and step by step. You can use color coded pre-drawn pictorial input charts on butcher chart paper with markers, but I prefer using the white board with lots of bold colors. I teach five periods a day, so it saves paper. By the end of the day you are really good at it!
In-put Charts were designed to integrate listening, speaking, reading, writing and drawing. They work perfect with new NGSS Standards because students need the ability to draw and understand diagrams at a deep level. They are also good writing prompt tools.
With input charts I can really see how language is acquired most effectively when the emphasis is on meaning and the message; in other words, personal direct contact with students.
I allow for side notes, interesting stories; information your students want to start talking about. I have noticed that learning is made more relevant and meaningful for all learners with these charts.
