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.
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
