University Of the Pacific Course Credit Requirements
Course Title & Number of Credits Offered
CI TEACHING RE-BOOT MINI-CONFERENCE 2023
2 credit hours
- Short Course Title: CIReboot 2023
- Instructor of record: Karen Rowan, Fluency Fast Language Classes
- Course Description
The first goal is a CI RE-BOOT, re-grounding teachers who have been drowning in technology and lost their connection to the roots of comprehension-based teaching.
The second goal is to change the conversation around the CONTENT of that Comprehensible Input. Any CONTENT can be taught using the same basics of comprehension-based teaching.
Goal two is to, while grounding ourselves in the Comprehension Hypothesis, change the content we are teaching, which in some very fundamental ways also requires changing ourselves.
It does not mean that our sheltered subject matter has to be taught in English instead of the TL. It doesn’t mean that students should be producing output instead of receiving input. It doesn’t mean that meaningful content should be broken down to analyze its grammatical components. This is where we bridge both.
We start at the bottom and build to the top.
