This presentation begins with the definition of immersion and then walks through the different techniques including Total Physical Response (TPR), TPR Storytelling, example lesson plans, and the teaching differences between child and adult immersion.
The Native Language Community Coordination Training and Technical Assistance (NLCC TTA) Center connects the NLCC cooperative agreement recipients and provides support to them through training, technical assistance, networking opportunities, Native language resources, tools, and community engagement. The goal of the NLCC TTA Center is to maximize the recipients’ impact on each of their communities’ language revitalization efforts. This website also provides resources to ANA language grantees, applicants, and others working to preserve critically endangered Native American languages.
Successful grantees from the Office of English Language Acquisition at the Department of Education and ANA share stories about their efforts to train the next generation of Native American language teachers.
Language assessment and proficiency tools are often the best gauges of language acquisition. Join the ANA Pacific Region Training and Technical Assistance Center to learn more about how these tools can help you implement a successful language project.
