For the past 10 years, I have been experimenting with both teaching with comprehensible input and teaching with proficiency based techniques for both interpersonal and presentational speaking and writing. I have discovered a balance that works for me, and I want to share that with others. My hope is that they can create a balance and find a plan that works for them.
In this video, I explain:
-My day to day comprehensible input to start class
-Other CI techniques that I use during class
-Types of authentic resources that I use in each unit
-Speaking and writing activities in class
-A typical unit plan (an outline of day to day how I would design a unit with activities for each day)
I hope this helps you with your transition to incorporating both proficiency techniques and comprehensible input!
