Title: Teaching Social Meaning in Language

Teaching Social Meaning in Language

Description: This workshop focuses on practical ways  to raise students’ awareness of social and cultural meanings of language in the classroom and to support learners’ use of language in social-contextually appropriate ways. The workshop will consist of four components: 1) understanding the place of social meaning in language learning and teaching; 2) teaching social meaning through concept-based instruction; 3) supporting appropriate language use in communicative activities; and 4) assessing learner development. Examples will be drawn primarily from French and Spanish, but are relevant to all languages. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their own materials and tasks.

 

Presenter: Adam van Compernolle (Carnegie Mellon)
