Teaching 8th Graders to Tell Time in French By Karen Paris Mid-Term Project EDTC 631 Linking the Brain, Mind, Teaching and Learning
In French, students will be able to do the following: • Tell time using both analog and digital clocks. • Tell time using a “24-hour clock” and distinguish between A.M. and P.M. • Tell time using specific words, phrases, and sentences. • Ask and respond orally and in writing to the question “What time is it”?
Learning, Memory, and Retention
The Primacy-Recency Effect • Prime-Time 1 • New learning takes place and is most likely to be remembered. • Down Time • Time when it is most difficult for retention to occur, practice helps the learner further process the information. • Prime-Time 2 • Closure – the second most important learning position and helps the learner determine sense and meaning.
Assessment: • Oral response • Written response • Teacher observation
