AM Workshop: Setting the Stage for Success

Creating a Communication-Rich Language Learning Environment During this workshop, participants will make plans to enhance aspects of their learning environment to ensure success for all students. Participants will consider ways they will build relationships with students, set expectations for students target language use, and provide supports and scaffolds to students to build their confidence for persevering through tasks in the target language.


PM Workshop: Leading with Culture

 Building Intercultural Communication Skills During this interactive workshop, participants will deepen their knowledge about intercultural communication and how to encourage student growth in intercultural proficiency. Participants will practice evaluating authentic resources for their communicative and intercultural value and will be able to design lesson sequences that integrate the modes of communication where students investigate cultural products, practices, and perspectives and interact through authentic scenarios in a culturally appropriate way.
