How do we make world language learning a meaningful part of the educational landscape in our schools? We are the best connection to global citizenship that our schools have. Let's make our classrooms reflect this through interactive, content driven and connected instruction.
This workshop will demonstrate and provide interactive strategies for reaching 90%+ target language in your classroom across the three modes. All participants experience and leave with the tools and strategies needed to develop an instructional model that brings interpersonal meaningful language learning to their individual classrooms. Specific methods and examples for how to connect topics to broader themes and teach using high leverage teaching practices will be shared and utilized interactively. Attendees will have the opportunity to work together to create and plan activities for use in the classroom designed to enhance target language use and grow proficiency. A digital treasure chest of tools and activities will be shared! We will look at resources and utilize structures that can be applied broadly to many content areas and global themes for use in the target language at all levels. Remember that the key to target language success and proficiency growth is meaningful content engagement. What motivational learning experiences will you build with us?
