  • Call for Proposals: ACTFL Research Priorities

    The purpose of the ACTFL Research Priorities initiative is to support empirical research on six priority areas that are currently critical to improving language education. Proposals can initiate a new research study, support/expand a study under way, or explore an emerging research area that is connected to one or more Research Priority areas. Recipients are expected to develop a publication for a peer-reviewed journal and grant ACTFL first refusal for submission for publication to Foreign Language Annals. The research grants are funded by ACTFL. Below each priority area is a list of sample research topics; research studies need not be limited to these topics.

  • Feedback Request: Can-Do Statements for Intercultural Communication

    An ACTFL task force has completed a tool with Can-Do Statements for Intercultural Communication. Its purpose is to support the integration of the Communication and Cultures standards in teaching and learning.

    Before this tool is published, we would like your feedback. The tool is composed of an introduction followed by sample Can-Do Statements, an introduction to reflection, and sample reflection scenarios. Since this tool will not be published until feedback is received, do not save or share the pages of this tool.

    Please complete the questionnaire by Friday, September, 30 2016 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. You may click on the 'Save Draft' button to save your comments return to this questionnaire at a later time.
