Section A: Content-based questions Question 1 1.1 In Unit 1 of this module, you are introduced to a number of key concepts that you need to understand in order to be an effective teacher of English as a home language. Reread the Unit and do the following regarding the concepts listed below: Intelligibility; one-size-fits-all-approach 1.1.1 In your own words, explain what you understand about each of these concepts. (4 marks) 1.1.2 Why is intelligibility important when teaching English in a multilingual classroom? (3 marks) 1.1.3 Why is a one-size-fits-all approach a problem when teaching English in a linguistically and culturally diverse classroom? (3 marks) [10 marks]
To answer these questions, you need to first ensure you understand the concepts of intelligibility and the one-size-fits-all approach within the context of teaching English as a home language. 1.1.1 Intelligibility refers to the clarity and understandability of spoken or written language. In teaching English as a home language, intelligibility means that learners should be able to communicate effectively and clearly in English. The 'one-size-fits-all' approach on the other hand, refers to the usage of the same method or curriculum to teach all students regardless of their individual needs and circumstances. In the context of teaching English as a home language, it means using identical teaching techniques and materials for all learners. 1.1.2 Intelligibility is important when teaching English in a multilingual classroom because students must be able to understand and communicate effectively in the language. It ensures students are truly grasping the material, and not just memorizing phrases or sentences without understanding. It also decreases the chance of misunderstandings and miscommunication which can hinder the learning process. 1.1.3 A one-size-fits-all approach can be problematic in a linguistically and culturally diverse classroom since it does not take into account the unique cultural backgrounds and language proficiencies of the students. Students may have varying levels of English proficiency and different learning styles, which might mean they would benefit from different teaching techniques. By using a universal approach, some students may not fully grasp the material and therefore would be at a disadvantage. This approach could also lead to a lack of inclusion and respect of diverse cultural backgrounds. Remember, these are only suggestions and should be expanded upon in your actual responses to achieve full marks.
