… is a workshop I hold with a limited number of teachers each summer to collaborate on as much curriculum planning as possible to get us ready for the new school year. Format and topics are based on participants’ needs, but generally follow a macro-to-micro sequence over the course of two days as participants explore and put into practice strategies for developing unit plans and/or breaking unit plans into logically sequenced daily Can-Do statements.

The Brave Little Tailor
… is a workshop on how teachers can tailor comprehensible input strategies to fit their own personalities and students in world language classes. Teachers explore why and how to use more comprehensible target language in the classroom and how to help students transition from passive input to scaffolded interaction to spontaneous output. Focus strategies include storytelling and using authentic resources. For information about upcoming sites or to host The Brave Little Tailor in your area, contact me.
