I need some assistance with these assignment. sie strategies Thank you in advance for the help!  .According to O’Donnell, Reeve & Smith (2011), students find lesson rationales that connect the lesson with their future goals and strivings to be more satisfying and convincing. In this lesson rationale, I compare and contrast two major language acquisition theories to inform a lesson. In this lesson rationale, I also explain the influence my mentor teachers’ observation may have on my lesson and speculates the success of my lesson plan based on the mentioned major language acquisition theories.
One major language acquisition theory is Wittgenstein’s approach theory. This theory explains various issues about language acquisition. One such issue is that language as skills are paramount as a starting point for learning languages (Erneling, 1993). According to Erneling (1993), the theory also explains that language heard and conceptualized is limited, and that language is learned and used in a communicative context. This makes this theory a very important theory in trying to understand how a language is acquired. One of the aspects of this theory that makes it a very important language acquisition theory is that it can be used to explain the acquisition of the first language and the acquisition of the second, third and fourth languages.
Another major language acquisition theory is the Domestic Model of learning theory. Erneling (1993) explained that according to this theory, language, thoughts are inherently underdetermined and open-ended, and thus they can be developed and used in several ways. This theory tries to explain that language can be acquired in many ways, some of which have not yet been discovered. However, the theory fails to explain how communication, objectivity, and constancy of a language can be acquired (Erneling, 1993).
A major similarity between these two theories is that they explain how a language can be acquired. Although they differ in how they explain language acquisition, they have similar objectives, enhancing understanding of how a person acquires a language. Another similarity of these two theories is that both can be used to explain the acquisition of the first language and the other preceding languages. Both theories can explain and understand how an infant acquires the first language and how a person learns to communicate in a new language (Erneling, 1993).
