Brief Abstract

I will present a novel approach in Second Language Teaching, dubbed in the literature as the Foresee Approach which crucially modifies the existing approach to include not just content teaching objectives such as of social, natural sciences, math, or technology but the focus on language form as well. The teaching objective is not just learning the vocabulary associated with the content area subjects, but to an extent observing the form of the target language so that second language learners will have an opportunity to notice the formal features of the target language. Thus, the presentation is geared towards a wide range of future teachers interested in content or language instruction.

Presentation Length
