Guided Discovery for Language Instruction


New language can be introduced in different ways, and there has been a long standing debate on how to do it best. Most approaches fall within the deductive / inductive classification. Guided Discovery takes the best from both in a way that makes it work for a variety of settings and contexts, and as a tool to introduce different aspects of language at all levels. The purpose of this presentation is to provide theoretical background and a practical 4-step framework for implementation of Guided Discovery, accompanied by examples to see it in use.
