Creating a Student Driven Curriculum– April 5, 2021

Curriculum is so much more than the content we teach, and it is in partnership with our students, community, and culture that we can create a curriculum that is rooted in acquisition and relevancy. In this session we will focus on the OWL Curriculum Triangle and Threads & Progressions, and  learn to pull topics and themes from students to make the content & context the focal point of the curriculum, while paying attention to functions and text type. Participants will leave this session understanding the driving force of content as we push to higher levels of performance.

 

The Power of the Organic Road Map- March 22, 2021

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 how to use the system that creates and maintains student driven content, and how we can use organic road maps for post planning purposes. We will also discuss techniques and strategies used to assess our students in formative and summative modes from the Organic Road Map, one of the most powerful resources in our teaching!

 

Staying in the Target Language with Teacher for A Day  April 19, 2021

Join in on this session to 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– May 3, 2021

As we near the end of the year, it is important that the classroom community take the time to celebrate and reflect on the language acquired and the relationships created through the school year. This session will discuss how to reflect on the goals of each classroom, explore methods for students to prove their proficiency level, and celebrate individual and classroom successes through gratitude. Perfect timing for the end of the year as you are preparing your final classes with your students.

Finish Strong with Dynamic Circles & Debriefs -May 17, 2021

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. This session will focus on how to effectively use the energy and excitement of students’ next steps and how to maintain movement, play and community-focused language development into the circle. 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!
