Chunking with emergent bilinguals: The size and shape of things to come
from By: David Irwin
From May 19:
When you see a great movie with friends, what is the first thing you do afterward? Most people will break into animated conversation about the places where the plot shifted, or great moments of acting or action. But we don't typically stop in the middle of the great movie to debrief along the way. However, in education, that is exactly what we need to do to deepen the content and the language learning of emergent bilinguals. We know it as chunking.
