This four-session series will focus on breaking down the framework of OWL into concentrated and comprehensive pieces. Whether you know nothing about PPATH, are somewhat familiar with it after participating in an OWL PD, or you have been implementing each step of PPATH along the way- this series is designed to deepen your understanding of each part of PPATH for successful implementation and direction in your classroom.

 

Introduction to PPATH- October 9, 2019

 

Pairings and Groupings- October 23, 2019

The social aspect of language acquisition is crucial for student production and growth. How can we create an environment where students are constantly interacting with one another while staying 100% in the TL, even at the novice level? This session will unravel the science and purpose behind pairing, grouping and game structures and how we can start using them more frequently, effectively and purposefully in our classes today!

Prompts and Accountability- November 6, 2019

Prompts- What should we ask our students to do and how should we ask them to do it? What will prompt the task, and what will the task be? This session will focus on how to develop prompts in the moment using the the OWL Curriculum Triangle and the ACTFL Proficiency levels as the guiding foundations. Additionally, we will discuss strategies for high student- engagement and production and how they are a direct result of the prompts we create.

Accountability (Share Outs) – After given a prompt, and the appropriate to complete the it, how can we be sure that the task was completed, provide the appropriate feedback and resources to fill in “gaps” discovered in the production process to ensure further development of communication skills and lastly, pull new threads to start the PPATH over again? This step in the PPATH is often overlooked or forgotten, don’t miss this session to ensure that your students continue to grow!

Transitions- November 20, 2019

One of the most unique and most commonly recognized components of OWL are Transitions. Transitions are intended to help break down the filter, create movement and build the community. If you are wondering how to use transitions or are simply looking for a convenient way to spruce up your transition bank, this is the session for you.

Hooks- December 4, 2019

This session will help you to develop the skills of watching and listening to your students in a way that allows you to pull hooks on the spot. When we get comfortable with this aspect of PPATH, the flow of the circle and language production is guaranteed to increase- it is what makes the circle go ‘round! A Hook helps us to de-unitize and focus on context and content as the driving forces for moving up the proficiency levels in an organic way.
