The Interactive Classroom

Registration Link Here

An acquisition-based classroom is designed to be comprehensible and compelling. As a result, students are drawn in to participate in a variety of new ways! This day-long workshop will provide insights and activities that connect students and the curriculum on a deeper level. What do our students care about most? How can we combine their interests with their natural instincts for interaction? Join us as we explore ways to encourage thinking and communicating in the target language through visualization, illustration, scaffolded discussion and more. From before the bell to after class, collect and share ideas for creating input-based interaction for our students! This workshop welcomes teachers of all levels and languages interested in growing as an educator.
