Upcoming Workshops

  • August 6th and 7th, “Refresh, Renew, Restart Your World Languages Classroom” with Kelly Arispe and Amber Hoye

“Refresh, Renew, Restart Your World Languages Classroom,”
August 6th and 7th, 2018

Professional development workshop for Secondary World Language Instructors that targets updated Idaho State & ACTFL Standards to achieve a communicative classroom.

This professional development course is for Idaho World Language instructors. Workshop attendees will become more familiar/oriented with the updated state standards and create a myriad of practical activities and assessments that can be integrated immediately for the 2018-2019 school year.

Two tracks will be offered: a 1-credit face-to-face option designed to meet the needs of all Idaho WL secondary educators and a 3-credit face-to-face and online option to support new instructors or experienced instructors wanting to update or create new course content. This workshop is hands-on: attendees should expect to work on and complete the course deliverables.

Topic Include:

  • Idaho State Standards and ACTFL toolkit
