Workshop 1: Focusing Learning through Standards and Can-Do Statements

Registration link

Workshop Description:  How can we be as effective as possible in planning for language learning?  The World-Readiness Standards answer the “what” of language learning, balancing the development of Communication with the meaningful exploration of Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.  What really counts to move along the proficiency continuum?  Unpack the major levels of proficiency by closely examining the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements organized by the three Modes of Communication and Intercultural Communication to fill in the “how well” to guide learners forward.  Use the lens of Standards and Can-Do Statements to analyze key shifts for learners and educators.
