Thursday Pre-Conference Workshop:

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Active Literacy: Effectively Engaging Learners in Authentic 21st Century Communication

This workshop will explore how 21st century literacies are reinforced and enhanced in the world language classroom. Participants will examine model units and lessons to identify how 21st century literacies are integrated and assessed. Working collaboratively, participants will outline units with SLOs (student learning outcomes) that reflect global literacy, media literacy, and digital literacy.

Presenter: Donna Clementi

Friday’s Keynote Speaker:

2014 ACTFL Teacher of the Year Linda Egnatz believes that the most important role we play for our students is the visionary. The 21st century world offers students many opportunities, and as language educators we must inspire them to see themselves in that world; communicating and interacting in culturally appropriate ways as global citizens in a language not originally our own, but rather adopted and loved for its ability to connect with others. In her keynote address,“Mission Possible: Globe Nation,” Egnatz will inspire us to become those visionaries for our students.
