Meeting the challenges of instruction, practice and feedback in World language Teaching online

Monday, June 15, 2020


Since we as world language teachers are having to re-purpose our skills in order to deliver our classes remotely, there are challenges that we have encountered. These challenges are only intensified because of goals, standards, and performance ratings that have to be met in our teaching and in our students’ learning. Join us and let’s work together to jump-start effective, agile new ways to teach and address students’ learning needs as we advance in this century.

Guest Speakers Include:

Allison Carneiro da Silva from Stonewall Jackson Middle School

Rhode N’komba from Falls Church High School

Rebecca Fox, Ph.D., from the College of Education and Human Development

*NEW* REsource from the aatsp!

UAB has a new COVID-19 website in SPANISH with a lot of critical information. Besides from the fact that we are trying to reach Spanish speakers in the state that may need this information in Spanish, it really has a new overview of the vocabulary (with visuals) for Spanish instruction.

"Power Up Proficiency and Go Global"

This webinar was a joint collaboration project between MORE Learning at Avant Assessment, the Minnesota Council on the Teaching of Languages and Cultures and Langchat. Host Dawn Samples (MORE Learning Dir. for Professinal Learning,), Megan Budke (President, MCTLC), Meredith White (#langchat moderator) and Linda Egnatz (Exe.
