Teaching Workshop for Community of Practice members (SAILN CoP) and LARC Instructors

Date: Monday April 5th, 2021
Time: 4:30pm to 6:30pm PT
Content-based language learning using authentic materials can be highly motivating because students learn about real topics, but it can be easy to lose sight of how they are progressing linguistically. By having both language and content objectives for our courses and lessons, we can ensure that students are not only learning the content, but also developing their language skills. In this workshop participants will use a variety of content to explore ways to identify and integrate language and content objectives in their course planning and assessments.
