March Blast from OWL

By March 10, 2020 News

Hello, ¡Hola!, Bonjour, Ahlan, Nín Hăo, Guten Tag OWL’ers!

Happy Women’s History and National Reading Month! With these two underpinning themes to the month, we can energize our classrooms with culturecurrent events, and fun as we transition into the final phase of the school year.

OWL is proud to be a women-run organization and is grateful for teachers and women making a difference world-wide. We are constantly inspired by strong women who stand up, stand strong and share the #owllove.

Need some engaging ways to interact with text this month? Check out our blog on literacy or OWL’s literacy organizer.

Summer Dreams are made at 2020 Bootcamps!

Join an unforgettable professional development experience where teachers learn to fully implement a 100% target language and student-directed classroom. The six day experience focuses on the whole teacher through Social and Emotional Learning practices, experiential learning of OWL methods and strategies, and implementation of target language, multiliteracies, and community in the classroom. In cooperation with ACTFL, OWL Bootcamp provides the one-day OPI Familiarization training to bring a deeper understanding to language levels and to hone teacher questioning techniques. This signature OWL event creates a confident, whole-hearted teacher who is ready to dive into an authentic and immersive environment with their students.
