Strengthening your Core: Practices to Support Students’ Language Development

by Kristin Davin (University of North Carolina at Charlotte; Department of Middle, Secondary and K12 Education), who will be presenting on ACTFL’s core practices.

Participants will engage in activities that foster their understanding of how to choose appropriate authentic texts and ways to check students’ understanding of those texts. They will also develop and share oral interpersonal communication tasks that foster spontaneous communication and negotiation of meaning. Participants will leave this workshop with a variety of interpretive and interpersonal communication tasks that they can immediately carry out in their classrooms.

This professional development workshop in CERCLL’s biannual LAnguage TEacher Symposium (LaTeS) for K-12 teachers provides practical applications for the classroom and includes Arizona Continuing Education. The workshop is free, but registration is required to attend.
