This session seeks to explain how using the construct of Willingness to Communicate (WTC) can increase student participation in urban foreign language classrooms. The work presented reflects the outcomes of a study conducted in Pittsburgh Public Schools. The study explored the use of student self-reports and questionnaires to receive input to understand what ecological and content factors influenced student WTC. The study analyzed student participation in speaking activities. Participants in this session should leave with resources to capture student interest and tools to monitor student participation in the classroom as well as a list of factors that influence the classroom.
