Because vocabulary acquisition is so important in language learning, we demonstrate one way of introducing new words to students – using the IRDP strategy (focussing on input, recognition, discrimination and production).

Dee Reid - Te Reo Māori Advisor, School Support Services, University of Waikato: Now the whole purpose of this strategy is to model one way, it’s not the only it’s just one way, that you could perhaps teach vocabulary to your students.

This is the first stage, input. Right, say these words after me...kōpaki (students repeat)...kopaki (students repeat)...ka pai...the long “ō” āe...it’s not kopaki, it’s kōpaki...(students repeat)...tino pai, kōpaki. He kōpaki tēnei...mārama? kōpaki

Kōpae...(students repeat)... Kōpae...(students repeat)... Kōpae...(students repeat)...

Anō...tino pai. He kōpae ēnei. Kōpae

Rauemi...(students repeat)...Rauemi...(students repeat)...at the back there on those tables, Rauemi (students repeat)

At the back there on those tables...Rauemi... (students repeat)...website...Rauemi...now this time instead of repeating the word after me, I’ll say two words. Just remember the pictures that I’ve introduced those words with, okay, just remember the pictures because there’s a little bit of a cross over with the words I’ve chosen, so just remember the pictures I first showed to do with kōpaki are to do with kōpaki. I’ll say one word and you need to say āe if it’s correct or kāo if it’s incorrect.

Kōpaki...(students respond: āe)...kia ora tino pai.

Kōpae...(students respond: āe).

Kōpaki...(students respond: kāo). Engari Kōpaki – he rauemi kei roto i tētahi kōpaki.

Now I’ll say two words and you’ll repeat the one that is correct.

Kōpae...Kōpaki...(students respond: Kōpaki).

Kōpae...Kōpaki...Rauemi...(students respond: Rauemi). Tino pai.

Last one...it’s all up to you. If I say count to three and then you say what you think this is alright? It will be easier that way so you can respond as a group.

Tahi, rua, toru... (Picture of a poster appears on screen)...(students respond: Rauemi).

Tahi, rua, toru... (Picture of a folder appears on screen)...(students respond: Kōpaki).

Tahi, rua, toru...(Picture of a website appears on screen)...(students respond: Rauemi).

Tahi, rua, toru... (Picture of ring binders appears on screen)...(students respond: Kōpaki).

I think you’ve got it, I just wanted to give you one way and show you how real it is, you know, how appropriate and how effective it is in teaching te reo or a second language.

Key message It is important to follow up vocabulary acquisition with opportunities to use the words in context.
