“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
  • Make grammar activities fun, engaging, and learner-centered
  • Integrate culture into vocabulary and grammar with comprehensible input and output activities
  • Free, web-based technologies that are amenable to grades 6-12
