Morning Session:

Maximizing the Use of Authentic Resources in the Language Classroom

Embedding Authentic Resources into Lesson Plans Understanding that it is ideal to use authentic resources as much as possible in our lesson plans, how do we achieve that goal? During this workshop, participants will become familiar with a variety of approaches for making choices about how best to embed authentic resources in their lesson plans. Participants will analyze scenarios and practice using a formula and game board designed to assist with the planning process.

Afternoon Session:

Using Authentic Resources to Teach Grammar as a Concept in Context

The “Core Practices for Language Learning” by the American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages (ACTFL) includes “teach grammar as a concept and use in context.” During this workshop, participants will explore routines and strategies for finding examples of authentic resources for grammar in context, processes and protocols that lead students to inductively analyze how language structures function, and ways to embed grammar in context into learning.
