We will begin by defining interpretive communication and examining the various processes, reader- and text-based factors involved in reading and listening. We will also look at what readers and listeners are able to do and the types of written and spoken texts they are able to interpret at different ACTFL proficiency levels and sublevels. After exploring process-oriented approaches to reading and listening, you will find authentic written and spoken texts and use them to develop activities for your learners. We will also consider how to promote effective reading and listening strategies, as well as using technology to help develop interpretive communication skills.Workshop Leader: Julie Foss, Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern Foreign Languages, Saginaw Valley State University
