Rebecca Aubrey - ACTFL 2019 Teacher of the Year
One of the Core Practices of World Language Learning is for students and learners to use the target language for 90% or more of classroom time. Teachers who strive for 90%+ target language typically identify giving directions, establishing routines, and managing behavior as the most challenging. Reverting to English, however, is a slippery slope, and it is precisely these circumstances that create a meaningful purpose for the target language, and an opportunity for authentic, comprehensible input. This workshop will explore a variety of strategies for making directions, transitions, and behavior management comprehensible in the target language. This will include classroom videos, photos of classroom organization, student rubrics, and technologies for classroom management. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their current practices and revise them to increase target language use across all aspects of classroom time. While drawn from K-8 teaching experiences, these examples can be applied to any language or level.
