Description

This February, join a community of high school teachers and make further connections as you share your classroom culture, communicate across many topics, and compare best practices, creative ideas, innovative techniques and practical solutions.


ABOUT THE TWO-DAY WORKSHOP
During the two-day workshop, participants will gain an understanding of the core design and content of the proficiency-based NEWL assessments in world languages, as they relate to course curriculum, exam content, online administration and scoring. Special attention will be given to incorporate local conditions into the design and planning of proficiency-based curriculum, as teachers gain an understanding of and experience with the four sections of the exam. Upon completion of the seminar, participants will receive a certificate of participation and of qualification to administer National Examinations in World Languages (NEWL™) series at their home schools.

Join a community of high school teachers and make further connections as you share your classroom culture, communicate across many topics, and compare best practices, creative ideas, innovative techniques and practical solutions.

WHAT IS NEWL?
A joint academic project of American Councils, ACTFL, and The College Board, NEWL is intended for both heritage and non-heritage secondary school students and provides a set of measures of functional proficiency in critical world languages: Arabic, Chinese*, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian (also known as Prototype AP® Russian).

*The College Board offers a course in AP Chinese Language and Culture. We encourage students in AP school districts to take this exam.
