Online PD: Spring Series

This four-week series will provide you with all the tools necessary for an organized and confident end to the school year! Designed for both new and experienced OWL’ers, each week we will discover and explore resources guaranteed to leave you assured and with fresh ideas.

Staying in the Target Language with Teacher for A Day  March 14 4:00 EST -or- 5:00PST

Join in on this session learn how to create a true presentational assessment for your students by putting them front and center in the circle as the Teacher for a Day. We will share the building blocks of how to set up the system in your classroom as well as all the resources you will need to make this powerful experience a manageable and enjoyable one! Many teachers say that this is their favorite part of the year, come find out why!

The Importance of Showing Students Their Growth March 28 4:00 EST -or- 5:00PST

How many of you would like to be able to know and demonstrate your students growth in the language? This session will clarify the difference between a performance and proficiency assessment, while offering examples and samples of proficiency assessments used in the classroom. Perfect timing for the end of the year as you are preparing your final assessments. We will also discuss how to focus on student self-reflection of their learning and how they can take ownership for their language level, though the assessments.

Keep it Moving! April 11 4:00 EST -or- 5:00PST

As we near the end of the year, schedules get busier and the flow of our classes may be interrupted with outside opportunities and fun our students hold dear in other discipline areas and extra curricular activities. In this session we will focus on how to maintain movement, play and community-focused language development. Join us for this session to keep our students and us moving towards a strong finish that supports all of the work and joy we have put in to ensure we finish strong in the target language!

Finish Strong with Dynamic Circles & Debriefs April 25 4:00 EST -or- 5:00PST

As our school year comes to a close, we want our students to leave our classrooms feeling confident and empowered to move to the next level in their language development. In this session we will focus on how to bring the energy and excitement of your students’ next steps into your circle. Join us for this session to keep our students engaged and motivated to continue their journey within the target language.
