ProPay 1-2-3: Contemporary World Language Instruction - Day One

Overview

Are your students ready to produce more in the Target Language? Not sure how to make your speaking tasks meaningful and authentic? This new ProPay 1-2-3 course delves into what is authentic communication and creating tasks that lead to higher levels of compressible output. This is a new ProPay 1-2-3 and expands upon our original ProPay 1-2-3- course entitled Effective World Language Instruction: Teaching with Comprehensible Input. Participants in this cohort will advance their skills in comprehensible input-based instruction while learning about and creating communicative tasks that lead to enhanced oral proficiency skills for students.

Participants will:

  • Gain a renewed perspective of communicative teaching through a lens of what VanPatten calls contemporary language instruction.
  • Incorporate tasks defined by VanPatten into lessons and units which will lead to increased communication in the target language by students.
