Sponge, in partnership with the Confucius Institute and the Washington Association for Language Teaching, is proud to offer a 3-hour Workshop for Language Teachers on 10 May 2017 (5pm-8pm) at Medina Elementary School.
Dr. Helena Curtain, an internationally known expert on second language teaching methodology, curriculum development, and bilingual immersion education, will help language educators examine effective activities and strategies in language teaching.
- We will be exploring the aspects that we must consider in implementing communication-focused early language learning programs that is deep, rich, and engaging, for both students and teachers.
- We will examine ideas on how to employ strategies that are at a minimum intrinsically interesting, but that also incorporate elements that are cognitively engaging and culturally connected.
- Through demonstrations and hands-on activities, we will focus on practical ways to deepen activities in the early language learning programs so that they have maximum impact on the learner.
