New on the Learning Site: Proficiency trackers

09-26-2019  All News, Featured Post

Help your students track their growth and their performance towards proficiency with these new proficiency trackers, now available on our Learning Site. Available for both our Spanish series EntreCulturas, and our French series EntreCultures, you can use the trackers by downloading and printing them from the Learning Site or assign them online for each unit and for the entire year. 

If you are a Learning Site pro, find these under the Content tab of your course for EntreCulturas and EntreCultures, in the Proficiency Resources.

Speak Up for Languages

08-12-2019  All News, Events, Featured Post

Speak Up for Languages

Do you remember that moment when languages just "clicked" for you? When you realized languages would always be a part of your vocation? When languages made an impact on your life and the lives of others?

We would love to hear your story! Tell us why languages are important to you, why you decided to learn or teach languages, and how languages changed your life. Submit a video or a written story to be included in our Speak Up for Languages collection to be launched later this year at an event at ACTFL. 

Thank you in advance for your story, and for all that you do to enrich your students' lives through world language instruction. 

 

 

 



In case you missed it: Watch our Poolside Proficiency series now

07-09-2019  All News, Events, Featured Post

Don't despair if you missed our smashing summer webinar series focusing on teaching for proficiency! The archived version of our Poolside Proficiency series is now available! Here is a quick summary of the four episodes: 


The basics: What does a proficiency-driven language program look like? 
Let's discuss interculturality, using vocabulary and grammar in context, unit goals, essential questions, authentic resources, measuring students’ performance, and much more with our French and Spanish programs as our guide.

Authentic resources: Where to find them, how to use them
Authentic resources can be used to build vocabulary and language structures. We'll share some strategies on how to use these resources to teach vocabulary and grammar in context and keep instructors and students in the target language.

Beyond traditional testing: IPAs and rubrics
Explore types of formative and summative performance-based assessments, and holistic and analytic rubrics. Connections will be made to how assessments can evaluate student language usage in culturally authentic contexts.

Integrating technology: Online tools to support your instruction
Digital textbooks, grading and feedback tools, online classroom forums and more—take our Learning Site for a spin and receive free access for further exploration after the webinar.

Watch all four now!
