“Embedding Authentic Resources into Lesson Plans”

by Leslie Grahn

January 20, 2021, 4:00 – 6:00 PM

NYSAWLA, in collaboration with the New York State Education Department’s Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (NYSED-OBEWL), is offering this free, online workshop for world language teachers and administrators working in New York State schools.  The first workshop in this series, Curating Authentic Resources for the World Language Classroom, was held on November 3, 2020 and attended by over 600 educators.  Leslie Grahn, noted leader, presenter, author, and blogger in the field of world language education, returns for a second workshop in the series, Embedding Authentic Resources into Lesson Plans, to explore how to make authentic text work for teachers in the various phases of lesson planning.  In this two-hour workshop, participants will:

  • Consider how to embed authentic resources into phases of lesson plans;
  • Analyze scenarios for embedding authentic resources into lesson plans; and
  • Use a planning guide to build authentic resources into lesson plans.

A maximum of 950 pre-registrations will be accepted for this live workshop.  Registration will close by January 18th; there will be no same-day registration.  Only pre-registered attendees will be admitted into the workshop. 

A recording of the workshop will be uploaded to the OBEWL website for on-demand viewing by those unable to attend virtually.  Those who attend the online workshop will be provided with a certificate of attendance documenting two hours of CTLE credit.  Those who are unable to attend the workshop on January 20th may earn CTLE credit by viewing the recording on the OBEWL website and answering at least eight out of ten questions on a multiple-choice post-assessment correctly.  No registration is necessary to view the recording of the workshop.
