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.
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.
