Event description

Description

We all know that in order to acquire a language, learners must receive as much exposure to the target language as possible. In their guidelines for the use of target language in the classroom, the American Association on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) cites Dr. Krashen’s research: “Learners can only acquire (internalize) language when they hear large quantities of input (..) that is interesting, a little beyond students' current level of competence (i + 1), and not grammatically sequenced.” (Krashen, 1982). Furthermore, ACTFL has made facilitating the target language comprehensibility their first Core Practice.

In this highly interactive session, participants will learn how to develop class-created fictional characters with their Novice students, while building their descriptive language and literacy skills. One Word Image is a wonderful way to provide Novice students with language in context and prepares them for story telling.

This is the second of a series of mini-workshops for World Language teachers. For more information about the series and discounts, click here.
