(Accelerative Integrated Methodology)


Saturday, January 17, 2015

Attend our upcoming workshop to learn how AIM blends the best of language-acquisition theory and brain-based
research with systematized and engaging classroom practice, creating astounding results. In this
interactive session, you will learn how the AIM gives students a working proficiency in the target language
using these key techniques:
• Gestures are used to convey meaning to ensure a target language-only environment! Teachers do the gestures; students do the talking.
• Useful, key words are taught first!
• Teacher-Led Self-Expression is a technique used to model meaningful and spontaneous
• Plays and stories as a starting point to engage students in action-oriented tasks.
• Cooperative activities get students working with each other, speaking, and writing in French.
• Assessment as, of, and for learning - Involve students in the assessment process!
