ACTIVATING SCHEMATA

Think of a communicative event (out of your experience) similar to that in


activity 2 in which you had to resort different schemata to make sense of the
what you hear, saw or read.

When I was a child I had a schema about mammals, I thought every mammal lived
on the ground, for example, dogs, cats, elephants, lions, etc. Then I went to a
beach near my house, in Lurín, and I saw some dolphins jumping out of the sea, I
liked them very much immediately. Time after that, I learned in school that they
were mammals; it was a surprise for me to know that they are not fish so I changed
my schema: not all mammals live on land, and not all the animals which live in the
sea are fish.
