For attendees of the Arizona Language Association (AZLA) annual conference, CERCLL is doing a presentation that focusses upon some of its recent projects:
Free Resources for Teaching Language, Literacy, and Culture
Presenters: Jill Castek, Beatrice Dupuy, Emily Hellmich, Kate Mackay, and Shelley Staples.
This presentation will introduce some of the newest resources for teaching language and culture, available online at no cost from the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL), a Title VI Language Resource Center located in Tucson, Arizona. Among them are materials for integrating socio-scientific issues into the FL classroom, and for designing, implementing and assessing multimodal projects; a set of materials that aid educators to integrate film-making into Spanish language classes; and a corpus of student materials in Portuguese and Russian, with guides for its use.
Presenters will touch on several new resources, and focus on these in particular:
- Translating Machine Translation: Pedagogical Guidelines Based on Student Use (also see Fall webinar), Emily Hellmich
- Advancing L2 Composition through Socioscientific Issues, Emily Hellmich and Jill Castek (see more information and webinar here)
- Film School for Global Scientists, Jill Castek (also see Fall webinar)
- Multilingual Academic Corpus of Assignments – Writing and Speech, Shelley Staples (see the resource page, including links to the MACAWS interface and to webinars and explaining how to use the resources)
