Module 7 Week 1

Discussion post: 1. Watch the following videos:

The 5 Stages of Second Language Acquisition

Zone of Proximal Development

Answer the quiz questions provided in this video.

2. Answer the following questions and engage in a discussion with your peers.

1. What role does the zone of proximal development play in learning a second language? How will you address the zone of proximal development when working with ELLs?

2. What are the characteristics of BICS and CALP?

3. How do each of the stages of language acquisition relate to the use of BICS (social language) and CALP (academic language)? Why do you believe it is important for teachers to understand the difference between BICS and CALP and how they relate to the stages of second language acquisition, and planning for English Language Learners?

Discussion 7a

Answer the following questions:

1. Chapter 15 of the textbook discusses the processes of first and second language acquisition. After reading the chapter, discuss how the processes are similar and how they are different. What is your conclusion about the two processes? Are they more similar or different? Explain your responses.

2. Silent period or pre-production is the stage when second language learners simply listen and absorb the language. What suggestions do you have for supporting a student in your class who is in the silent period or pre-production stage of language acquisition? Justify your suggestions.

3. Discuss the characteristics of BICS and CALP and why it is important for teachers to learn about BICS, CALP, and Cummins’ quadrants.

Module 7 Week 2

Discussion 7b:

Answer the following questions.

1. Discuss the major tenets of Krashen’s and Cummins’ model of second language acquisition and discuss how you would apply the models in your classroom.

2. Krashen talks about “comprehensible input” in his theory of SLA. Your text (Ariza) talks about common problems of learners of English. Think about a content area and discuss specific strategies you would use to achieve this in your classroom.

3. Research shows that academic language is the most important aspect of language learning in school as it relates to academic success. Given the number of years that it takes to develop CALP, what are some ways a teacher can ensure that ELLs are exposed to academic discourse? Be explicit in your discussion based on your reading of Chapter 17.
