    Pique Proficiency  

    Thursday, December 6, 2018

    Martina Bex

    We strive to teach our classes 90 percent or more in the target language,
    but how can we do that without receiving blank stares? In this session,
    attendees will learn effective and engaging strategies to make sure that their students understand them during instruction in the target language. They will participate
    in a series of proficiency-oriented activities that students love and that can be done entirely in the target language, regardless of which language they teach!

    Effectively Using Authentic Resources
    in World Language Classrooms 
     

    Thursday, January 17, 2019

    Nathan Lutz

    In this interactive workshop, we affirm that culture is the core content of any
    world language course and that it lies at the heart of the standards-based approach to language education. The best way to delve into a culture is by using authentic resources rather than watered-down cultural summaries or worse, culture explained in English. 
    In this workshop, we’ll show how even novice-level learners can tap into the power
    of using authentic resources. Join us as we explore various types of authentic cultural resources to better inform students’ knowledge of cultural products, practices,
    and perspectives. Suitable for teachers of all age groups and proficiency levels.

    Creating the IPA
    and
    Preparing the Way 
     

    Thursday, March 7 2019

    Lisa Shepard

    As the focus in today's language classrooms shifts from vocabulary lists
    and grammatical structures to communicative and cultural competence,
    teachers need to develop new methods of instruction and assessment.
    In this workshop, the presenter will guide the participants step-by-step
    through the process of creating an Integrated Performance Assessment
    as well as standards-based lessons that will prepare their students to be successful
    on this type of assessment. Please bring a laptop to this workshop.
