From Grant Boulanger:
Here’s an interesting article. This guy is a friend of a friend and RIGHTLY attacks the grammar-centric curriculum. He is an ally in that regard.
However, he suggests appropriating from the language immersion model the idea of content as driving the curriculum. Teach them age appropriate stuff about math in French and they’ll learn French.
I think he overlooks the fact that immersion education works primarily because kids are given 2-3 years (from Kinder-grade 2) in which they are not expected to output at all in the TL. This is what sets them up for success.
