PrAActical Research on PResuming Competence
A- A+

We love PrAACtical research that involves intervention that presumes competence.  In this post, we bring you an article by Drs. Anne Emerson and Jackie Dearden on how adopting a ‘full’ language approach and presuming competence can result in increased understanding of complex language and literacy skills.   (Emerson & Dearden, 2013).  They discuss the role of adopting a ‘minimal’ vs ‘full’ language teaching approach.
