2019 TFLTA Workshop: Increase Your Input (Spanish)
Presenter: Paul Jennemann, Shelby County Schools; Language of Presentation: Spanish; How can I keep up my level of language if I'm only teaching Levels 1 and 2? Authentic resources are not just for use in our classes, but ways for us to increase our own input so we can, in turn, increase our level of input for our students in order to comfortably stay in the target language 90% of the class time. Increasing our input also helps keep us current in the target language, which helps us and our students be relevant to other native speakers. This session will provide specific resources for language teachers, how to curate those resources for use in class, and how to match the intercultural competencies standards with these resources.
