Can Your Students Speak Upside-down and Backwards, in the Dark?
Has a tech expert ever taught you a procedure by whizzing through all the steps as you stand by helplessly and watch? Because he whizzed through the steps, he assumes you got it!
In fact, you may have to repeat the lesson, take detailed notes and still get lost on the third step when there is an unforeseen glitch! It will take a good deal of practice before the lesson sinks in.
Don’t be like the tech expert,
Give your students every opportunity to practice the core elements of the language. They should be able to repeat structures to you upside-down and backwards in the dark! That is when you know they have acquired it!
