Teaching Foreign Languages K-12 Workshop
Annenberg Media
The "Teaching Foreign Languages" workshop will help K-12 foreign language teachers improve their practice by making connections between the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning and current research in foreign language education. Workshop components include eight lively half-hour video programs with leading researchers and practicing teachers discussing how the standards play out in day-today classroom situations, a workshop guide available online and in print, and interactive activities on the Web. Become a student, complete a range of activities designed to stimulate teaching, and prepare to conduct action research in a classroom. Teachers will come away with a deeper understanding of the national foreign language standards, and with ideas for implementing effective assessment strategies and working with learners across a range of language and skill levels. Individual programs include: (1) Meaningful Interpretation; (2) Person to Person; (3) Delivering the Message; (4) Subjects Matter; (5) Rooted in Culture; (6) Valuing Diversity in Learners; (7) Planning and Assessment; and (8) Engaging with Communities. [The contents of this workshop include: 8 half-hour video programs; workshop guide; and Web site.]
