INTERPRETATION























       

    It is most useful to:
     
  • Provide some free time before work begins.
     
  • Introduce in the concrete.
     
  • Debrief and summarize in the more abstract languages.
     
  • Visualize. It's an abstraction activity that produces a concrete result.
     
  • Create.
     
  • Use as many language families as possible.
    Use "differentiated instruction."
     
  • Not force someone to speak a less sophisticated language.
         You speak it.     Don't force them to speak it.
