Immediate Immersion Workshop
teachforjune’s Immediate Immersion LIVE is a 3-day workshop covering the basics of teaching with comprehensible-input and story-asking.
Based on Stephen Krashen and Bill VanPatten’s research on second-language acquisition and other brain research, Immediate Immersion is a form of optimized immersion where students learn their second (or third) language like they did their first. Your students will be immersed in the language on a daily basis allowing for high engagement while effortlessly acquiring the language. You’ll be amazed how well your students will be able to speak and write the language like never before. No longer will students say they took 4 years of X language, but they don’t remember anything.
You will learn how to teach language with comprehensible-input-based activities to immerse your students in language and maximize acquisition. You will participate in demos of all the activities in German, engage in the debriefings following each demo, and practice each of the activities.
You will also be taught the basics of comprehensible input as well as proficiency-based grading and assessments.
Optionally, participants may add on a copy of the Immediate Immersion Curriculum in Spanish (levels 1 and/or 2) or French (level 1) for an additional $30 ($279.95 value) per language/level. The Immediate Immersion Curriculum includes 24 lessons with readings, story scripts, and story strips, a teacher’s manual, culture lessons, assessments and homework. It’s everything you need to start teaching with comprehensible input on the first day of school!
Or participants may add on our Immediate Immersion Webversity Course for an additional $60 per person ($400 value). This is an online course with 30 pre-recorded lessons (lessons will be released throughout the school year from August – May) and 10 LIVE debrief/Q&A classes that meet monthly. The Immediate Immersion Webversity Course expands upon what you’ve learned in the Immediate Immersion LIVE Workshop, covers additional topics on classroom management, classroom setup, and goes more in-depth on proficiency-based grading and assessment practices. All live debrief/Q&A sessions are recorded and can be watched live or recorded, whichever is more convenient for you.
