LOTE Turkish


Language is an integral part of our identity and language is the expression of our unique relationship with the land and the cultural practices that have been handed on down the generations for thousands and thousands of years. At Garden College, Turkish is taught to students with an attempt to bridge the gap between their Australian and Turkish identities. Students are taught Turkish whilst developing an understanding of Turkish tradition, culture and society.

 

 

Reception

Overview

At Garden College, the Turkish LOTE staff aims to offer students the opportunity to effectively communicate with members of other cultures in a worldwide society through an increased knowledge and understanding of the Turkish language and culture.

Lesson Structure

Reception students have 2 periods of LOTE – Turkish per week. During Turkish lessons, students hear words, phrases and basic sentences in context. Students are introduced to formal Turkish with repetitive patterns and they develop strategies for memorisation and comprehension, which are modelled and practiced with them. Students also begin to interpret gestures and facial expressions and use some of these non-verbal cues as an important part of the Turkish.

Students start to understand and use Turkish in structured situations and activities related to their life: myself, family and school. To develop comprehension, they respond non-verbally or by using key words or short phrases. They begin to use sets of words and sentences that are encountered frequently in the classroom, and begin to insert words into simple sentences. Students learn to recognise the printed form of familiar words that they have learned and memorised.

Scope and Sequence

As a part of the academic year, the activities that are organised by the LOTE Turkish department include:

  • ANZAC Commemorations
  • Multicultural Day (LOTE week)
  • Poetry Competition
  • Multicultural Children’s Festival
  • Story time
  • Writing Competition

Assessment

In Turkish, students are assessed anecdotally whilst actively participating in activities. Students are also tested on their identification and pronunciation of Turkish letters and their ability to write and use them independently. Evidence of student learning is collated during and through:

  • Anecdotal notes
  • Observation of students writing and formation of letters and drawings.
  • Class participation
  • Homework

Resources

Students at Garden College are taught Turkish using the Gokkusagi series of Textbooks to complement and reinforce what is demonstrated and modelled in class. Other resources used include:

  • Interactive board
  • Work sheets
  • White Board
  • Posters
  • Flashcard
  • Story books
  • Educational games

Benchmarks and Recommendations

Students will be expected to complete Turkish homework which will attempt to allow them to recognise the “different” or “difference between” sounds of similar letters, and demonstrate differences for key sounds. Students will be given simple tasks such as identifying letter-sound relationships and copying and tracing letters and letter clusters whilst matching them to sounds and words. It is expected that parents assist and ensure that students complete their homework.
