Before our PD day I joined strategies group but on Friday, I changed to environment group.
What made me interested in environment group is the sentence “create an environment in which students feel comfortable to take risk in their language learning”.
As a foreign language teacher, I really want to encourage my students to take risk by using their new language out of their classroom. I am passionate about the way to create an environment for my students to feel comfortable and to take risk.
During our PD day we created inquiry questions:
- What role does the physical environment play in language learning?
- What role does the social environment play in language learning?
- How can we authentic role models?
- How can we foster student ownership over their learning environment?
I am looking forward to our group meeting together soon. We have six Wednesday that we come together and then we present our final production to the staff.
