Improving Language Learning:
Styles- and Strategies-Based Instruction

July 18–22, 2016


Target Audience
: K–16 foreign language and ESL teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, language teacher educators, and researchers.

Enhancing students' ability to learn a foreign/second language through styles- and strategies-based instruction (SSBI) is the focus of this institute. SSBI is a learner-centered approach to teaching that enables students to become more effective and efficient foreign language learners by helping them understand and make the most of their own learning styles and strategies.

Participants will create lessons for differentiated instruction with supporting materials and explore ways to incorporate strategies into their own language curricula. During the institute, participants will have an opportunity to apply SSBI according to their own interests—whether directly for classroom instruction, conducting SSBI workshops for teachers, or doing SSBI research. This institute draws extensively from the CARLA publication, Styles-and Strategies-Based Instruction: A Teachers' Guide. Each teacher will receive a copy of this book as part of the institute.
