Spring Series – Part II: April – May 2012
Integrating 21st Century Skills to Engage Today’s Language Learners

ACTFL and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills collaborated to produce the World Languages 21st Century Skills Map to guide teachers with examples for improving learners' language performance while developing broader skills. Communication is essential, but to be truly career-, college- and world-ready, today's learners need to develop their creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. Identify effective strategies for designing units, assessment, and instruction that prepare students to use their new language in settings beyond the classroom. The team of presenters will provide descriptive examples in each webinar based on their backgrounds teaching at various levels, specifically including examples for elementary grades, middle school and senior high programs, as well as postsecondary levels.

The first webinar of this series took place last Wednesday; register for upcoming webinars at http://www.actfl.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=5345
