Summer 1: May 23- July 1 (ONLINE ASYNCHRONOUS)
This course will examine the role of the High Leverage Teaching Practices (HLTPs), or Core Practices, that drive the fundamental aspects of World Language Instruction for pre and in service teachers. Participants will examine the theory and research that informs each practice. The course readings, videos, and discussions will allow participants to relate each core practice to their own curriculum and create work products that they can implement in their classroom. Conducted in English for teachers of all languages.
The ACTFL Core Practices for World Languages teaching and learning identify effective strategies and tasks that are essential for all levels of language instruction. These High-leverage Teaching Practices (HLTPs) are the tasks and activities that all teachers, novice and seasoned alike, should understand and integrate into a standards-based languages program in order to enhance student skill development and proficiency. Based on the research of Donato and Glisan (2017), the HLTPs signify the core priorities for all instructional design and assessment practices that teachers use to engage all students in the learning process.
By the end of this course, participants will have the opportunity to:
- examine the research that informs each core practice.
- deconstruct each practice from the research to apply in the classroom.
- rehearse the practices by applying concepts to instructional videos.
- develop lesson/assessment samples for the core practices.
- engage with classmates while reflecting on your curricular practices.
