The Monterey Bay World Language Project at California State University, Monterey Bay invites you to participate in the 2020-2021 Seminars for World Language Teachers

Program 1

Teaching with Clarity

Teaching with Clarity: Designing A Weekly Lesson Plan with Global Competence. A 3-Day Seminar and Coaching Opportunity presented by Yo Azama, 2012 ACTFL Teacher of the Year, with MBWLP Team on September 12, 19, & 26, 2020

Lesson design is a big part of a teacher's life. Good teachers understand that a well-designed lesson is key for successful learning. However, a unit planning process can take time and often feels overwhelming for busy teachers. In this series, participants will design a weekly lesson that they can use immediately for the upcoming week in cohorts. Three consecutive weekends are designed to provide ongoing lesson design experiences that are supported by the presenter and cohort members.

Goals: As designing a weekly plan, participants will…

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the Global Competence Framework
  • Develop meaningful communicative tasks
  • Identify and establish key assessments
  • Develop clarity on language task sequence

Sample one-day schedule: 9am - 11am: Seminar; 1pm-3pm: Collaboration + Coaching*; (*Collaboration time with presenters to design your weekly engaging tasks and activities for immediate use.)

Offered via Zoom. CEU Credits Available. Limited time registration rate $60, all inclusive.
