I went to Blaine Ray's workshop today. I'll have more thoughts about it later, but one thing that really struck me was a comment he made about our brightest students and our fastest processors. He said that we are doing a disservice if we underestimate what they can do and do not insist on their achieving that.
As far as my faster processors, he suggested I skip into the level 2 books. I can still shelter my vocabulary by translating whatever comes up for the slower processors, but those fast processors need that grammatical input.
I already have two higher level novels and the Look I Can Talk More readings, so I believe that I will begin experimenting with more Comprehensible Input (CI) next week.
