Language Experience

Language Experience

This is a very simple way to get students to help you create and write stories.  A student or a small group of students sits down next to the teacher who is at the computer, and they begin to tell a story, in English. The teacher types the story in Latin.  The following day, the teacher has copies of the story for students to read.  They may illustrate it.  The teacher may do an R and D session with them jor a Readers’ Theater.  After processing the story in whatever way the teacher decides, a timed write can follow.  If the teacher does this on a regular basis, the teacher will amass a nice collection of student generated stories in Latin for future classroom use.
