OFLA Workshop

If you are a language teacher in Ohio or will be visiting our state for the OFLA conference in April, please consider attending my workshop on Thursday April 10 at 5:30pm.

The title of the workshop is Creating Materials for an Engaging WL Classroom.  There will be two main components:

1. Using our students as a context for instruction: Demonstrations on how to get to know our students well and use their interests, ideas, and beliefs to make our material relevant.

2. Creating materials: One way to ensure that our materials will be relevant is to create them (or at least adapt them) ourselves.  I will demonstrate effective methods for harnessing our own creativity to develop several types of materials.  I will offer examples of my own work to be used as a starting point.  We will also examine how to mesh teacher-created materials with authentic resources.

Please consider attending and/or sharing with friends and colleagues.
