Language Development Interview




Much of the knowledge we gain comes from our learning and personal experiences.   For this assignment, you will spend time talking with an experienced preschool teacher or, if you are currently a preschool teacher, you can answer the questions yourself.   Your assignment is to select five questions regarding the support of language acquisition and language developmental stages in the classroom. Please review these possible questions that could guide your interview or you can create your own questions.


Option 1


a.Identify five questions that you could ask someone with preschool experience about how they support language acquisition for the stages of development in the classroom.   Document the interview.   You can record the interview (with permission) or you can write your questions and answers.


b.Analyze the provided answers using your knowledge gained, the textbook, and at least one other resource to substantiate or refute their answers.   You can provide elaboration for or against their responses further strengthening your own understanding.  


c.Summarize and explain three ways you will meet the needs of children in this stage to support their language development using the provided answers and your knowledge.
