Participants will use pedagogical principles and strategies from the Foreign Languages and the Literary in the Everyday (FLLITE) project to create original lessons, discover new open educational materials featuring playful language use, incorporate formative and summative assessment into FLLITE lessons, and prepare and peer-review materials for possible publication.

About the FLLITE project

FLLITE aims to create an educational community of teachers who will generate crowdsourced literacy lessons for the L2 classroom. The lessons will refine and extend the pedagogical principles of “the literary in the everyday”, in which “the literary” refers to the range of playful, metaphorical, and non-conventional ways of making meaning.
