First day of iFLT 2013

Castle-2-1You know that a conference/workshop is good when you leave thinking to yourself that everything must be re-examined!  Of course not everything must go… it just feels that way when bedrock assumptions are put in jeopardy. For me today it was Stephen Krashen, who gave a talk that left me seriously reconsidering the role of comprehension questions in my readings. Still processing, but feeling better than ever about where my teaching is going…

BTW, Krashen will also be at NTPRS in Dallas later this July. I am sure it will be just as amazing.
