Tina and I won’t repeat our 15 city workshop tour around the country next summer. It was tough. Instead we are doing this, from a recent post by Tina on FB:
Planning Summer Institutes for World Language Proficiency 2018!
Here is DRAFT information on what they will potentially look like.
These ftrainings will set you up with instruction and assessment systems that you can deploy directly into your classroom when school starts back. You will experience the systems as a student in an uninterrupted five-day morning session with a max of 35 classmates. In the afternoon, you will work with Tina in a large-group setting (max 70 people) in the afternoon to learn about theory, assessment systems, and delivery and classroom management skills to support your students’ language development. Then you will receive whole-group partner coaching on specific skills that align to what you experienced in your morning class. In the evenings, you will work with your coaching partner to practice those skills while they are fresh on your mind.
