Dummy, it's Istanbul (not Constantinople).
I am amazed at what a dumb teacher I used to be before I learned all the "correct" terminology (i.e. "words") for language acquisition (i.e., "learning"). Here is a modest sampling:
- world languages (not foreign languages);
- productive communication (not speaking and writing);
- receptive communication (not listening and reading);
- multiple intelligences (not drawing pictures and dancing in class);
- diversity instruction (not "share your grandma's favorite dessert");
- administering a formative assessment (not giving a quiz),
- administering a summative assessment (not giving a chapter test);
- student self-esteem (not bratty defiance of classroom rules);
- real world language (not grammatically incorrect speech);
- enhancement (not games and memory gimmicks);
- closure (not homework assignment);
- instructional technology (not slideshows and movies);
- communication/proficiency /standards-based instruction (not teaching in whatever way gets the kids to learn the language and like the culture).
Ah well, now I know the Truth. Too late, though. I'm retired--and thinking about taking a cruise to Constantinople. Or a windmill-tilting trip to La Mancha.
