About this event

Presented by Flangoo Digital Readers

Hosted by Dr. Jamie Lincow

A FREE MONTHLY WORKSHOP EVENT FOR WORLD LANGUAGE TEACHERS

We meet the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Each session will focus on a new set of world language stories from various levels. Topics will include grammar ideas, learning how to incorporate readers for enrichment or review, exploring how culture can be incorporated with stories, presenting different approaches for engaging your students individually and as a whole class, discovering new extension activities, expanding speaking/listening skills using readers, and more!

The workshop is free, and is ideal for teachers who are new to readers and stories, but will also be full of helpful tips and strategies for teachers who already use stories.
