Using Authentic Materials to Develop Students’ Interpretive Communication Abilities
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0| $30
CARLA Saturday Workshop Series
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to develop students’ 21st century literacies through interpretive communication activities grounded in authentic materials (i.e., written, audio, and audiovisual texts). First, you will consider connections between 21st century literacies, interpretive communication, authentic materials, and language development. Next, you will explore ways to effectively develop students’ foreign language literacies through engagement with authentic materials and interpretive communication activities. Finally, you will develop your own lesson plan organized around an authentic text you bring to the workshop.
IMPORTANT: Please bring one or two examples of authentic written, audio, or audiovisual materials to work with throughout the workshop!
Presenter: Kate Paesani, CARLA Director and affiliate Associate Professor, University of Minnesota. Kate has presented and published her work on text-based curriculum and instruction in a wide range of national professional venues.
