    Teach for Acquisition

    Thursday, October 6, 2022

    Martina Bex

    The transition away from designing language courses based on a traditional grammar syllabus requires a shift in thinking as well as a shift in instruction. In this workshop, attendees will consider both the theoretical basis for Proficiency Oriented, Comprehension Basedâ„¢ teaching and its practical application. Attendees will explore these concepts through interactive demonstrations.

    From Principles to Practices: Maximizing Language Development Across the Three Modes

    Florencia Henshaw and Maris Hawkins


    This hands-on workshop will guide educators in developing communication-focused activities and lessons for the three modes (interpretive, presentational, and interpersonal). First, we will focus on setting goals that are informed by the ACTFL proficiency guidelines, and we will review some fundamental aspects of second language acquisition, particularly as they pertain to proficiency-oriented instruction: the roles of input and output, focus on form, and feedback. Then, participants will evaluate, modify, and create activities to put principles into action.


    Purchase Orders: If paying by purchase order, the purchase order must be received by FLENJ no later than 21 days before the event (April 13, 2023), or your registration will be canceled and you will be waitlisted.  Please email manager@flenj.org if you have any questions.
