Vocabulary teaching v7

issues:

  1. 應該減少圖片,比如剩下兩張
  2. E1, E2 的教學方式 instruction 要更清楚去區分 (考量到實際執行時需要的人數和時間,借班級的方便性等等,乾脆刪掉E2。只保留C和E1來比較就好。很單純的就是比較有沒有圖片的輔助聯想記憶的教學效果)
  3. 你的hypothesis claim不夠明確! (刪掉E2以後,就沒必要以Gestalt theory為主要討論核心了。單純就只是利用圖片來記憶因果關係,還有其他未知的輔助效果,可以在這邊查明)
  4. 這次要真的教材了!
  5. L2 learners shall learn how to connect forms and meanings
  6. 排除沒有因果關係的連環圖。
  7. 對於有沒有對話框,都無所謂。只要因果關係明確即可。(有字的還是優先!這樣我舊不用設想單字或作引導。)
  8. 考量時間限制的關係,把圖片數目限定為2~3張(用來確保能保持一定數量的新單字,同時這也符合我的訴求,人的注意力資源有限制,不能給予太多圖片。因為到最後還是只能關注少數幾張)

 

Claims: People would learn better if they could learn with pictures (so that they would remember the casuality of things)
