South Asian Communities

Catalysts for Educational Change

This book draws on the strengths that characterize communities and shows how these strengths can be put to use in improving education. Inspired by the South Asian communities with whom she worked, the author considers also Black African and dual heritage communities. Her ethnographic approach used a methodology specifically addressing the imbalance of power so that the suggestions and initiatives are led by the communities themselves. Members of a community have the greatest knowledge of their own culture and of cross-cultural challenges. This makes the book uniquely valuable. The book combines findings from the study, analysis, and theory with practical approaches. Each chapter concludes with creative applications in the classroom-what the children can do. The suggestions for lesson plans and activities are based on the children's own knowledge and socio-cognitive development. South Asian Communities will be invaluable for all those who work or intend to work with South Asian communities. With its extensive references to sociological and psychological research, it will be of interest to students of sociology, cultural studies, and social psychology, and its attention to issues of globalization and western society will attract an international audience.

Perché soltanto pochi studenti raggiungono il livello B1 del quadro europeo delle lingue e la maggioranza di loro non supera il livello A2 manifestando una limitata capacità comunicativa? Questo semplice interrogativo fa riflettere sulla necessità dell’utilizzo di metodologie didattiche che accelerino e potenzino il processo di apprendimento dando a tutti l’opportunità di raggiungere in tempi rapidi una significativa padronanza linguistica. Il Codice dell'Apprendimento è un manuale di didattica delle lingue centrato sul concetto che l’apprendimento degli skills linguistici può essere notevolmente potenziato attraverso l’utilizzo del sistema cinestesico-motorio. La grande novità del libro è la combinazione tra il metodo Total Physical Response, lo Storytelling, Role-playing e Simulazioni che concorrono a velocizzare i tempi di acquisizione delle lingue attraverso un approccio multisensoriale. L’apprendimento delle lingue straniere infatti, come confermato dai più importanti studi di psicolinguistica, si realizza in maniera più efficace con il coinvolgimento di tutti i cinque sensi dell’uomo. Il codice dell’apprendimento insegna l’uso di queste straordinarie metodologie ed è rivolto a insegnanti, genitori, studenti e professionisti. Ecco alcuni degli argomenti più significativi: La Comunicazione linguistica, ambiente naturale e ambiente scolastico, gli emisferi cerebrali, i meccanismi della memoria, la programmazione neurolinguistica, il transfer nell’apprendimento, i segreti dietro l’apprendimento cinestesico, come attivare la memoria a lungo termine, come decodificare la lingua in tempo reale, il cervello poliglotta, apprendimento e dsa, il problem solving nella didattica, il TPR, lo storytelling, il metodo situazionale, i role-plays. Il libro è arricchito da numerose attività didattiche dettagliatamente illustrate per una facile e veloce applicazione in aula. Oltre 100 ore di lezioni, oltre 100 immagini, dialoghi, role-plays, sussidi e attrezzature didattiche e una serie di consigli pratici per avere dei risultati eccezionali e incomparabili. Mauro Morretta Formatore di docenti madrelingua, Esperto del metodo TPR e di didattica multisensoriale e Maria Grazia De Francisci Psicopedagogista, Esperto in DSA e difficoltà scolastiche, ti sveleranno attraverso la loro esperienza i segreti di queste fantastiche metodologie.
