  • Monday, June 17–Friday, June 21, 2013

Workshop Description

The special topic will be “Collaborations in the Target Language Classroom and Communities” and will incorporate the five Cs of the national Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. Participants will read selected professional articles that deal with student-to-student collaboration in the classroom as well as interaction in target-language communities and will discuss them in class. They will collaborate with their classmates in designing lessons and activities that engage their students in collaborative work in the target language for communicative purposes, acquisition of new information, and interaction with communities in which the language is spoken. The class will meet daily from 8:00 to 4:30 with a one-hour break for lunch. The course will be taught in English and is open to all foreign language instructors.
