What do you get:

A better understanding on language proficiency. This will help you guide your students to better understand what they need to accomplish to become fluent at a particular level.

Research-based sessions that will help you better build your curriculum and provide you with some strategies to incorporate in your teaching. We will concentrate on proficiency levels: oral proficiency, phonetics, and creative writing.

Learning and understanding what is the MS Seal of Biliteracy and how to use it to create clear goals for your students, motivate them, and sound economic facts on the importance of creating biliterate speakers for our states. This could be your advocacy tool to share with your administration the importance of retaining, supporting, and growing language programs.

Furthermore, you will be able to network and share ideas with other MS teachers at different levels of teaching. All languages and teachers are welcome.
