My colleague Adriana Ramírez (@veganadri) has published some beginner results. Here are three of her kids’ writing samples from early October 2015. This is semi-sheltered grammar (no past tense yet) from classic TPRS: storyasking and reading, with some MovieTalk. They had 30 mintes to write these. Also note that these kids
- do not “practice” writing
- do not “practice” or “study” grammar
- are not forced into any kind of “communicative output” or “communicative pair” activities
- do not use notes or dictionaries when doing writing assessments.
These are very good results. Check it!
