Are you wanting to start off this year strong? Hone your skills and connect with students in new and powerful ways? Meet state standards and also see how they can work for you in real life? Increase student engagement? This interactive training will collaboratively demonstrate several examples of questioning strategies that achieve a target language environment and maximize engagement. Participants will engage in hands-on practice of questioning strategies that scaffold and naturally ‘push’ language growth, while keeping the content authentic. Based on the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, this training will focus on question samples at the Novice to Advanced ranges. This training also effectively bridges the gap from standards to everyday instructional practice in a way that produces consistent results. By bringing the standards to life and incorporating them seamlessly in our classroom, it allows students to see their growth and feel confident and successful in their language use.
