Dear World Language Educator: It is our pleasure to announce the 30th Annual Summer Seminar for Language Teachers, co-sponsored by the California Language Teachers’ Association (CLTA), the California World Language Project (CWLP), and the California Global Education Project (CGEP). Once again, we will hold this professional learning conference at the University of California, Santa Barbara, from July 19-24, 2019.

With the adoption of the new California World Languages Standards and the announcement of Global California 2030, this is one solid week of professional learning that you do not want to miss. In keeping with these momentous accomplishments, the theme this year is The New California World Languages Standards: Pathway to Global California 2030. Four of California’s very own ACTFL Teachers of the Year will join us at the Seminar and two of them will be introducing the new World Languages Standards.

One of the unique features of the new standards is the focus on developing students’ global competency and literacy. Together, the Global Competence Framework (Investigate the World, Recognize Perspectives, Communicate Ideas, and Take Action) and the new World Language Standards can lead us toward realizing the forward-thinking initiative of Global California 2030. “The mission of Global California 2030 is to equip students with world language skills to better appreciate and more fully engage with the rich and diverse mixture of cultures, heritages, and languages found in California and the world, while also preparing them to succeed in the global economy” (CDE, 2018). This initiative promotes increasing world language classes, dual immersion programs, bilingual teachers, and the seal of biliteracy awards across the state.

There will be seven exciting strands to choose from: 1) Innovation for Our Profession: Introducing the 2019 World Languages Standards for California; 2) Global Competence: Developing Leadership for a Multilingual World: 3) Project-Based Language Learning: A Standards-Based Pathway to Global Competency; 4) Developing Successful Pathways to Global Competence in the Chinese Classroom; 5) Enhancing Global Competency with High-Leverage Teaching Practices in the Japanese Classroom; 6) Bridging the New California World Language Standards to the Heritage Spanish Classroom; and 7) STARTALK Leadership Development for Teachers of Critical Languages and Cultures. We are delighted to offer this unparalleled professional learning and collegial networking opportunity for World Language educators once again at Summer Seminar ‘19 in Santa Barbara.
