Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will present a variety of low-prep, high-impact, learner-centered strategies for world language teachers of students at any level of proficiency, in order to make the most out of the authentic images they plan to use in the classroom. The primary goal of this session is that each attendee is able to take away concrete steps they can immediately incorporate into their own classrooms. These strategies will weave culture and content in the target language to facilitate student language acquisition and growth. The goal is not to change what we teach, or even to change how we teach, but to remember to constantly ask ourselves: Is there a more culturally-entrenched and relevant way I can have my students interact with this content?
