Move to Improve: A Second Language Acquisition Method to Support the Teacher and the Learner of Upriver Halq’eméylem

Date created
The Upriver Halq’emeylem that is offered to adults in an accredited course appears to be thematic based; with emphasis on nouns and the grammar component follows a verb-based curriculum. And to complement the second language acquisition of the Upriver Halq’emeylem learner, it is vital that the instructional methods supports the student’s learning. As an Upriver Halq’emeylem instructor, I am always looking for second language acquisition strategies to support my existing curriculum and/or to guide me in expanding or developing new curriculum. On July 5th, 2018, I registered for the 834-Effective Pedagogies and Materials Development for First Nations Languages and instructed by, Dr. Marianne Ignace. It was there that I discovered the Accelerated Integrated Methodology created by Wendy Maxwell. It is a comprehensive teaching methodology for second language acquisition and that has research and testimonials to support that students attain greater comprehension and quicker fluency, within the target language.
