World language educators are invited to networking sessions.

AM Workshop:

Building Interpersonal Skills During this workshop, participants will do a deep dive into the interpersonal mode. They will deepen their knowledge about their Generation Z and Alpha learners and how to engage them in interpersonal tasks. Participants will also explore ways to build student confidence to spontaneously communicate, practice designing interpersonal tasks, and consider ways to give feedback to students that leads to growth in their interpersonal communication skills. Time will be allotted at the end of the day for “design time” when participants will create and plan for interpersonal tasks for the students.

PM Workshop:

Assessing Student Performance in the Proficiency-Focused Classroom How do we gauge student growth in proficiency in the language classroom? In this workshop, participants will gain strategies for designing proficiency- based performance assessments, calibrating scoring, and practice providing students with meaningful feedback to grow in their proficiency level. They will examine proficiencybased rubrics, Can-Do statements, and templates and processes for designing real world and developmentallyappropriate assessments for language students.
