Many teachers say that this is their favorite part of the year, come find out why!

Literacy Activities- Wednesday, May 10 4:00-5:00 EST or 4:00-5:00 PST

As the year comes to a close, it is important to continue to focus on effective authentic resources and literacy in the classroom. Would you like some new ideas on how to incorporate literacy at the right level for your students, and continue to keep pushing them, right up to the end of the year? This session will provide differentiated literacy activities that will challenge and support all students, regardless of level. Finish the year strong, while continuing to provide the interactive classroom environment OWL is known for!

Performance vs Proficiency Assessments- Wednesday, May 24 4:00-5:00 EST or 4:00-5:00 PST

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 other 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.

Reflection and Goal-setting for 2017 and 2018- Wednesday, June 7 4:00-5:00 EST or 4:00-5:00 PST

This often over-looked step in our teaching is a necessary component to be able to reflect and set-up effective processes for the next year. Taking a few moments at the end of 2017 can make for a more pleasant beginning to 2018. In this session, we will examine the areas of success and growth from 2017 and set tangible goals for 2018, while it’s still fresh in your mind. Don’t miss out on this essential and meaningful step to wrap up 2017 and get a jump start on 2018!
