Goal of Website
The goal of this website is organization, both personally and for the language teaching community as a whole. On a personal level, I have followed many blogs over the last several years, and I am a self-proclaimed digital hoarder. Therefore, Teaching Comprehensibly is primarily a way for me organize what I have learned about teaching with comprehensible input. However, on a greater level, I also hope that this website may offer some organization to the ever-expanding world of CI teaching by bringing together voices of multiple opinions in a way that is user-friendly for teachers who exploring comprehensible input for the first time.
I am the creator of very few of the ideas on this website. I have learned most of what I know from excellent teachers like Martina Bex, Terry Waltz, Chris Stolz, Cynthia Hitz, Mike Peto, Keith Toda, Blaine Ray, Michele Whaley, and countless others. Throughout the website I have attempted to give credit where credit is due. However, if you believe that I haven’t cited someone properly, please let me know and I will take care of it.
Also, while I have studied and experimented with CI-based teaching for the last several years, I am by no means an expert CI teacher. Therefore, if you believe that I misrepresent some part of TPRS or TCI, please let me know. While I have tried my hardest to provide clear, helpful, and accurate information that is fair to the different factions of TCI, I have much to learn, and I am open to criticism that you may have. Thank you very much for reading!
