The Role of Second Language Pedagogy

By Vardit Ringvald

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Spring 2011

As we contemplate the best ways to teach Hebrew in our schools, we should note that the best learning pedagogy can emerge only when the language educator is adequately equipped. When teachers are knowledgeable about the theories of second-language acquisition, aware of learner variables and responsive to learning conditions and environments, they will be able to reflect on their practices and modify their activities, either during or after the lesson, in order to make the right decisions as they choose or create the most effective pedagogies in support of the language acquisition process.
