Teachers of any grade, level or language can use these strategies immediately. You will learn how to: Stay in the target language AND be understood Design Comprehensible Input (CI) lessons Create the environment that encourages student output Put cultural knowledge at the very heart of your curriculum Teach grammar in a natural, whole language context Read seminar details online: EducatorInService.com/workshops  Day 1 is "Rethinking how we teach" and Day 2 is "Rethinking what we teach".  Who benefits from attending?
