INNOVATIVE IDEAS TO FOSTER THE 21ST CENTURY MINDS

Running out of ideas to engage students in your world language classroom? Wondering how to incorporate ACTFL Three Modes of Communication along with The Four Language Learning Skills in your teaching? Feeling bored with repeating your activities year after year?

This workshop will introduce a series of classroom-proven activities designed to meet the needs of 21st Century Learners. These activities will positively enhance students’ skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing while incorporating the three modes of communication—interpretive, interpersonal, presentational.

These strategies are tried and tested in real classroom teaching. This will be an interactive session featuring student work samples, video demonstrations, and tips on how to build a strong and cohesive student-centered learning community. A variety of practical classroom activities along with step-by-step instructions will be shared with the audience. The activities include Quiz Quiz Trade, Ask Ask Trade, Sentence Picture, Running Dictation, just to name a few.

This hands-on workshop will be split into two parts, the first part focusing on auditory strategies while the second part on literacy. The audience will be asked to actively participate in sample activities and will walk away with some ideas they can easily apply to their own classroom practice.
