Good News! The on-line registration link for the 25th Annual CLTA / CWLP Summer Seminar at Santa Barbara is now live and available to interested world language educators. To register, please go to www.CLTA.net/summer.
This year’s theme will focus on Common Core and World Language Standards: Engaging 21st Century Learners. While the Seminar’s general sessions will continue to address topics relevant to all participants, including Common Core Standards and World Language Education, we will be adding 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 ready!
In addition to our regular offerings, we have a wonderful addition to the language specific strands: Multi-Media Strategies that Engage 21st Century Learners of German: from Chalkboard to Smartphones. We will also have a new strand: Immersion / Two Way Programs: Research, Models and Instructional Strategies for Chinese and Spanish Programs. For those recent to the profession, we will once again offer the Foundations strand: Standards-Based Lesson / Unit Design to Increase Students’ Linguistic and Academic Performance. Please be assured that the content in the strands that are repeated from one year to the next is updated annually.
