Hi ACTFL friends!


Please share with colleagues in the DC area. We have found that monthly job-embedded PD is a really powerful tool, especially when more than one person attends from the same department/school.


Let me know if you have any questions.


Warmly,

Anna

Dear colleagues,


Rachelle Adams and I are pleased to announce that we are once again offering a monthly professional development series entitled Teaching With Comprehensible Input: The What, Why, and How. New this year is a level 2 series, Teaching with Comprehensible Input: Taking Your Skills to the Next Level for those who already have a solid background in teaching with CI.


Here is a taste of the feedback we received at the end of last year's six-session series:

  • This program should be taught in every school that offers [a] world language program.

  • CI [Comprehensible Input] gives you a more holistic approach... [it] appeal[s] to the heart and the intellect.

  • [I learned that] as language teachers we are the front lines of multiculturalism, and we need to take on that role with our students, parents, colleagues, and administration.

  • I have seen my students becoming more risk takers.

  • I love that both of you have very different styles and you both work well together. This helps different types of learners (and teachers) to connect to your sessions!

  • Thank you for your amazing energy and positive feedback every time.

  • I loved it. I felt very comfortable. The sessions were well-planned and [well]-structure[d].


Below is information about both of the series-just click on the titles for more information.


Please also share with colleagues in other schools.


Let me know if you have any questions.


Best,

Anna Gilcher
