Teachers Link Their Curriculum to Language
Marisol Greenwald, Spanish Instructor, Mesa Community College
need quality materials and lesson plans to help them on their road to learning
language lab technology. Now a manual of
over 35 lesson plans, accompanied by an audio CD and quick reference user guide
is available for Sanako Study 1200, Lab 300 and Lab 100. These lesson plan manuals were written by an
experienced High School and Community College instructor. Her lessons come from her own teaching
experience. They have been tried and
tested and have proven to facilitate second language acquisition. Putting them into a manual is the author's response
to a recurring issue: although the technology of the language labs is exciting
and motivating, teachers still struggle to link that technology to their curriculum. Labs still sit idle because of lack of
material for teachers to practice with.
Teachers don't have the time to learn the lab features and create activities
to reinforce them. The manuals address
these needs - the lessons are created and based on a skill-driven
platform. In addition, these lessons
move the teacher through the different stages and features of language lab learning. The appendix is lab-specific (screen shots
and terminology) and is there as a reminder to teachers of "where to click".
Now teachers have the material they need to practice each
technique without taking away valuable educational time from the students. Each activity has several variations, so that
when one technique or type of activity is mastered, there are more to work
with. Neither the student nor the Teacher becomes bogged down with repeated
lessons just to practice a lab feature.
Each lesson, adds variety to the instruction. Students stay motivated because they are
given variety. Teachers become more
motivated, because they can create original lessons based on the ones in the
manual. These two powerful components
make a successful language learning program.
the lessons are in Spanish they are described in English with educational
objectives and step-by-step implementation guidelines; so that the non-Spanish
teacher can easily see the format of the activity sheets and adapt these
lessons to another language and/or level. The manuals include lessons at all
levels from beginning through Advanced Placement and explain how easily these
lessons can be adapted.
are given ideas on how to create their own authentic language, what kind of
activities promote each skill and mostly, how to integrate all language skills
in each activity. Multi-level courses
are a reality and the manual shows how one audio file can be used for multiple
lessons with multiple outcomes. The
learning is student-centered 100% of the time.
Language teachers know that it is essential for students to be able to
self-pace their learning, the language lab allows them to do it effectively.
Sanako/Tandberg promises to help teachers, we do it by giving them what they
that is ready-to-go and beneficial to their students.
lesson plans are available in the following formats:
audio files $150.00ea.or
Electronic with audio files and hardcopy $195.00ea.
a copy of any of these lesson plans contact your local representative or send
an email to email@example.com.
