“Liberating yourself is nothing. What is arduous is knowing how to be free…” Gide, The Immoralist


Attitude
~Attitude~

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string that we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.”

Charles Swindoll

Comprehensible input
Comprehensible Input

  • The language acquirer understands the input.

  • Essential to language acquisition and literacy.

  • Comprehended input (intake) is what counts, not just input that is potentially comprehensible.

Comprehensible input1
Comprehensible Input

  • The comprehensible input should also contain language that has not yet been acquired but which the learner is ready to acquire (i + 1)

  • The more comprehensible input provided, the more language acquisition and literacy developed.

  • The school [district] must confirm COMPREHENSIBLE INPUT as the foundation ORAL LANGUAGE.

  • In search of ‘LITERACY’, each staff member and every content area has a responsibility to enhance ORAL LANGUAGE in the students. A rising tide raises all boats…

Supporting the language rich schoolhouse recommendations1
Supporting The ‘Language-Rich Schoolhouse’: Recommendations

  • A formal, district-wide, long range initiative to enhance ORAL language should be made at all grade levels.

  • Print and technological materials that

    DO NOT impede oral language developmentshould be given optimal consideration.
