Getting It: Understanding and Remembering


This stage of the model helps students to LEARN; that is to understand AND remember. This is important because if one cannot remember a concept- whether it be vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, cultural points or learning strategies- one cannot use it! Getting It activities help students understand the concept being taught at their own rate (self-paced) and through a variety of learning styles.  These activities need to be structured so that all students can succeed. The teacher needs to develop a repertoire of strategies and activities in this phase so that students can learn in different ways and not become bored or unmotivated when learning more difficult concepts.
