CATESOL - Event Information


Event Name:Do you hear what I hear? Intonation Training (Sat 1 pm)
Event Type(s):Prof Dev Meeting/Workshop
Interest Group (IG) Event
Description:In our Pronunciation Framework (Chan, Brinton, & Gilbert) https://marshaprofdev.blogspot.com/2018/02/what-language-teachers-must-know-to.html, we note
A) Conceptual knowledge #5 Learning how to “listen mindfully” is essential to any kind of pronunciation improvement.
B) Descriptive knowledge #3 Syllables and stress are the building blocks of rhythm and intonation.
C) Procedural knowledge #2 It is important for teachers to perceive intonation patterns/pitch changes.

One of the more difficult aspects of language to listen for is intonation, as it is not codified in written form with letters of the alphabet or commonly written symbols. This interactive training session is designed to focus on hearing pitch changes in spoken language. Auditory discrimination will begin with simple patterns of even, rising, and falling intonation. From single words we progress to phrases, integrating points of stress with intonation.
 
I welcome you to register for this session if you intend to be present and willing to participate actively.
