Learn engaging strategies to make your language teacher dreams come true - happier students, happier teacher, and happier outcomes - higher proficiency for more students!

With Justin Slocum-Bailey and Tina Hargaden

Learn how to teach for proficiency  - guiding your students to interact in the language, using it to communicate about real ideas from day one of class.  

Learn how to build literacy from the very first days of class - co-writing meaningful texts in a gradual release of responsibility model and following up with reading extension activities.

Learn how to make academic content and academic language accessible to your students, to prepare them for advanced work in the language.

Learn foundational skills to speak comprehensibly to your students and give them the tools to interact in the language- even when your students are total beginners.
