CLTA Affiliates FLA-OC, FLCSD, IEFLA, and MCLASC host
Every year, CLTA and other state language organizations from our Southwestern Region send one candidate to compete in the Teacher of the Year (TOY) program in the Southwest Conference on Language Teaching (SWCOLT). World Language teachers from Hawaii, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Texas and Oklahoma created a portfolio and were interviewed at the Conference, which took place at Snowbird, Utah from April 24-26.
We are proud to tell you that the winner of the TOY competition was CLTA’s candidate Nicole Naditz, a French teacher at Bella Vista High School in Fair Oaks (Sacramento County). Nicole has been a generous contributor and presenter in her local affiliate (FLAGS), Capital World Language Project (CapWLP) and CLTA. She represents the best qualities of a World Language teaching professional and will compete at ACTFL in November. Congratulations to Nicole!
This year’s theme focused on Common Core and World Language Standards: Engaging 21st Century Learners. While the Seminar’s general sessions continued to address topics relevant to all participants, including Common Core Standards and World Language Education, participants also reviewed Assessment of Language Learner Performance employing the NCSSFL/ACTFL “Can Do” Statements, and Engaging 21st Century Language Learners in acquiring the global competencies necessary to be college, career and world readiness!
Also popular were language specific strands, as well as a new strand: Immersion / Two Way Programs: Research, Models and Instructional Strategies for Chinese and Spanish Programs. For those recent to the profession, a Foundations strand: Standards-Based Lesson / Unit Design to Increase Students’ Linguistic and Academic Performance was offered. Content in the strands that are repeated from one year to the next is updated annually. If you wish to see the complete program listing, please go to http://www.stanford.edu/group/CFLP/summerseminar2014.pdf.
We hope that you are planning to join us next year for another professionally enriching experience at the Summer Seminar. Furthermore,we hope that you also will share the information with your colleagues and encourage them to attend as well.
