World Language Workshop: Authentic Input and Inspired Output

Date: Thursday - September 26, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Location: Princeton Montessori School



Authentic Input and Inspired Output in the World Language Classroom

For: World Language Classroom Teachers and Administrators


Hosted by:

Princeton Montessori School

487 Cherry Valley Rd.

Princeton, NJ 08540


Thursday, September 26, 2019

9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.



In this interactive workshop, we affirm that the target culture is the true content of any world language course and that it lies at the heart of the standards-based approach to language education. The best way to delve into culture is by using authentic resources rather than watered down cultural summaries or worse, culture explained in English. In this workshop, we’ll show how learners at any proficiency level can tap into the power of using authentic resources to serve as rich input. Join us as we explore various types of authentic cultural resources to better inform students’ knowledge of cultural products, practices, and perspectives. We shall also explore ways in which we can use those carefully gleaned authentic resources to create engaging activities to inspire our students to better speak and write in the target language. Participants will have time to develop inspired tasks based on their existing curricular themes and newly-found authentic resources from their target culture.
