Upcoming Professional Development with Rachelle Adams and me… for summer 2017 and school year 2017-18!

Rachelle Adams and I are once again offering professional development for world language teachers on teaching with comprehensible input. Please share widely!
 
Our summer series is an intensive version of the series we offered this year: “Teaching With Comprehensible Input: The What, Why, and How” and will take place July 25-27 from 9 am – 4 pm at E.W. Stokes Community Freedom Charter School.
There will be two job-embedded school-year series in 2017-18–one for teachers new to teaching with comprehensible input (or who want to be sure they have acquired the basics), and one for those who already have experience and are looking to grow their skills.
Here is a taste of the feedback we received at the end of this year’s six-session series, “Teaching With Comprehensible Input: The What, Why, and How,” which just ended:
 
  • This program should be taught in every school that offers [a] world language program.
  • CI [Comprehensible Input] gives you a more holistic approach… [it] appeal[s] to the heart and the intellect.
  • [I learned that] as language teachers we are the front lines of multiculturalism, and we need to take on that role with our students, parents, colleagues, and administration.
  • I have seen my students becoming more risk takers.
  • I love that both of you have very different styles and you both work well together. This helps different types of learners (and teachers) to connect to your sessions!
  • Thank you for your amazing energy and positive feedback every time.
  • I loved it. I felt very comfortable. The sessions were well-planned and [well]-structure[d].

Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions – anna.gilcher@gmail.com.

We will be capping registration at 30 in each cohort. We have kept the price low in order to facilitate several teachers from the same schools participating. We have found that the most effective shifts happen in schools where several teachers from the same department attend professional development together.

 
We look forward to seeing you soon!
