Dear World Language Educator:
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the California Language Teachers’ Association (CLTA), the California World Language Project (CWLP), and the California International Studies Project (CISP) are collaborating to co-sponsor the Annual Summer Seminar for Language Teachers. The 29th Annual Summer Seminar will take place at the University of California, Santa Barbara, from July 20-25, 2018 and will offer a variety of program strands especially designed to promote innovative core practices in World Language education that support our students in acquiring competence in world languages and cultures and in becoming globally competent citizens.
Focused on the theme of Instilling Global Competency in World Language Education: Words Into Action, the Seminar will offer participants general sessions exploring a number of topics that support this year’s theme and seven strands where the participants engage with their peers and facilitators in applying concepts learned in the general sessions.
Participants will jointly develop instructional strategies, assessment tools, and lessons/thematic units of study that they will implement with students in their own classrooms.
