Abstract: There is good reason to introduce students to theory, that is to understand the current state of knowledge about how language is acquired. It will help students understand why we teach the way we do, and will guide them in continuing to improve on their own after they leave us. In this session, we will focus on "Pop up theory", brief statements about how language is (and is not) acquired, used as a classroom management tool. These kinds of brief statements and reminders may be necessary: Because of the widespread use of skill- building in society, and its acceptance as an axiom in education, it is hard to set aside.
