    This 4-day course will present strategies on how to teach contextualized language while staying in the target language. The strategies will be based on Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input Hypothesis—language is acquired when the initial exposure to it consists primarily of oral and reading input that is made comprehensible by the teacher. We will present the idea that a flood of Comprehensible Input ultimately will aid in language acquisition and will lay the foundation necessary for long-term language proficiency.  We will teach unit planning using the Backwards Design approach, while using the Ohio World Language Learning Standards, the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, NCSSFL-ACTFL Can Do Statements, and IPA Summative Assessment.    

     

    The course will include:

    • Paradigm shifts for teaching language in the 21st Century
    • Using Kinesthetic Actions and Gestures through TPR
    • Contextualizing stories and narrative (TPRS)
    • Questioning strategies that keep the classroom in the target language 90%+
    • Reading strategies
    • Ohio World Language Learning Standards
    • ACTFL Proficiency and Performance Guidelines
    • NCSSFL-ACTFL Can Do Statements

    • Getting students to the proficiency level needed to achieve the Seal of Bi-literacy

     Inspire to Acquire: Reading Strategies for the World Language Classroom with Bryan Kandel

    Reading is an essential source of input in all world language classes.  Students who read well quickly improve their proficiency. However, engaging students in the reading process can be a challenge for teachers.  How do we provide compelling texts that our students will want to read? How do we make the texts comprehensible? How do we know if the students have understood?  How do we expand a text into cultural discussion in the target language? How do we create a classroom culture in which reading is accepted and enjoyed? In this workshop, we will explore strategies and techniques for increasing reading engagement in the world language classroom.
