Krashen's - The Monitor Hypothesis
by Shari Ravenelle
The significance of "The Monitor Hypothesis" in language acquisition.
Language is learned and continually built upon as knowledge is provided over an extended period of time.
Krashen recommends that the focus of language knowledge teaching should be communication, not rote rule learning.
List of facts, No why
Repetitive, Rule based
No theory of mind needed
with many second language acquisition teaching experts
with many foreign language teaching experts
Why I chose "The Monitor Hypothesis."
Krashen proposes that information is provided to learners, enters the brain, and the brain processes the information for the correct output. I agree with this theory. In working in a school for many years, I have noticed the faces of students who have been given information and you can see them processing that information before they respond.
