REGISTRATION CLOSED

January 13 - February 28

This course focuses on the skills and strategies that teachers, teacher leaders, department chairs, curriculum coordinators, and curriculum supervisors need in order to develop and sustain an effective standards-based world languages program. Utilizing the World Readiness Standards, the Can-Do Statements, Proficiency Benchmarks, and other documents presented by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), participants in this course will examine how curriculum development, assessment strategies, and technology integration align a program with proficiency standards. Additionally, participants will analyze how teacher recruitment and retention, teacher observation and supervision, and teacher professional development establish purposeful programs oriented toward standard-based language education. (Open to teachers of modern and classical languages. Conducted in English by Dr. Michael Orlando)
