The Art of Integrated, Literacy-based Lesson Planning
Cherice Montgomery, Assistant Professor of Spanish Pedagogy at Brigham Young University.
Registration will open in Fall 2020. (This event was postponed from Spring, 2020.)
This workshop offers a step-by-step process for designing multidimensional, literacy-based lessons that skillfully transform textbook materials into artfully integrated masterpieces of language, content, and culture. Workshop participants will learn to: (1) engage learners with the academic content embedded in culturally authentic texts; (2) employ interactive simulations and other content-based activities to develop learners’ critical thinking and discussion skills; (3) expand the complexity of students’ language by counterbalancing attention to language and content in informational texts (4) encourage students’ success with practical strategies for scaffolding language production.
CERCLL’s biannual Language Teacher Symposium (LaTeS) is a professional development opportunity geared towards K12 educators. Registration is free. A certificate for Arizona Continuing Education is provided.
