This four-week series will provide you with all the tools necessary for a proficiency based, student driven classroom! 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.

The Power of the Organic Road Map- January 15, 2020

As we further explore techniques and strategies for creating more student-driven learning environments, how to keep the content that arises in each of our classes organized is crucial for guiding our student’s growth. Join us as we share ideas and learn about one sample system for creating and maintaining an organic vocabulary list. We will also discuss techniques and strategies used to grow and use our vocabulary lists as one of the most powerful resources in our teaching!

Creating Student Driven Content to Create Connections- January 29, 2020 

In this session, each participant will create their own topic web, then share and collaborate with other participants about where each topic could progress or grow. For each progression, we will include conversations and ideas around the themes of literacy, flow and post-planning. Threads & Progressions are the foundation of the OWL Curriculum Triangle and allow us to use our students as the driving force of content as we push them to higher levels of performance. Don’t miss this one!
Pushing to the Next Level Through Question Sequences- February 12, 2020
This session will give participants a chance to create questioning sequences from progressions pulled from their teaching experience or previous sessions of this series Through the review and use of the ACTFL levels, and the defining characteristics of each, we will become more mindful of the prompts we are giving our students. Come explore when, where and how to push for the skills necessary to acquire a second language!
Literacy- Every Step of the Way- February 26, 2020

Following PPATH allows us to guide the circle while keeping accountable to the performance guidelines outlined in our state and national standards. Join in on the conversation of how we can make literacy flow in the circle via PPATH. In what ways can we integrate authentic texts to support the content, functions and text-types we are focusing on and pushing for? In this session we will share our favorite resources and activities and prompts that include literacy. Time will be allotted to collaboratively create example PPATH charts to work with the weaving in of literacy in our daily practice.
