Want to improve the use of "authentic” content in your classroom? Learn how to evaluate spoken and written "passages” for appropriate level. Gain expertise in developing language classroom tasks appropriate for various proficiency levels. This workshop is free but a cost is required for two-units of college credit for those interested.

This completely online 5-day workshop looks at various types of text (print and media) to determine how they map onto the various levels of proficiency, from the ACTFL Novice(ILR 0) to the ACTFL Advanced (ILR 3). Each day for one hour participants meet with the instructor in LARC’s virtual classroom to field questions and review the homework. The rest of the day, participants are free to enter LARC’s Moodle site and work through the videos, practice assignments, and homework. Participants will come away from this work-shop better equipped to choose authentic materials for the levels of language they are teaching, as well as to understand the properties of text that students are capable of producing.

Schedule
9:00 to 10:00 am Pacific Time – Live online discussion in Blackboard Collaborate virtual classroom
Rest of the Day – Work online through video, practice assignments, and quizzes in Moodle
Additional work with language specific content can be arranged

Registration & Fees
There is no fee charged for participation in the passage rating workshops.If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Evan Rubin at erubin@projects.sdsu.edu Some participants may opt to receive university College of Extended Studies credit, however, this is available at a cost of $TBA per credit unit. Forms for enrollment for credit are available through the College of Extended Studies website, and participants can also enroll on site during the first day of the workshop.

The Passage Rating Seminar ties in nicely with both the ACTFL Proficiency workshops that LARC will host in the summer and fall of 2011. It will also provide essential knowledge to those engaged in curriculum materials design and construction activities.
