If What You're Saying Is Real...
Saturday, May 18, 2019 8:30 am - 12:00 pm Location: Rutgers Academic Building, Room 1180 15 Seminary Place, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
Do your language students routinely discover things about themselves and one another in your classes?
Are you learning new things along with them?
Is real communication your classroom reality?
Come discuss ways of putting authenticity at the core of your class through use of texts and tasks that make students reflect and want to talk. If what you're saying is real, they will! Attendees will engage in activities and tasks that can be adapted for all levels and will have a chance to develop their own.
A certificate for three (3) Professional Development hours will be given to all attendees.
