The textbook industry loves public schools. Your budget needs liberating. Try something new! Help your World Language staff learn to craft curriculum units in our new online course “Spiral it up: Map your language program based on AP Exams”. They will map themes and their students’ communicative growth horizontally and vertically, unifying what kids learn and do. Through robust class routines, a huge emphasis on speaking and student centered activities and the reintroduction of grammar in diverse thematic contexts, student proficiency and staff communication will skyrocket. Units are fresh, original and flexible. Students learn by doing and by controlling their learning environment.
By personalizing our unit template with its interlocking core activities, you can transform the culture of the classroom into one of joviality, team-work and quasi-immersion. You will need access to your language curriculum. This is an opportunity to write curriculum and redesign your approach to second language acquisition. Open to teachers of modern and classical languages. (Conducted in English by Chris Carroll)
