Facilitating Learning with the 2019 Wisconsin Standards for World Languages

Presenter: Pam Delfosse, DPI World Language and Global Education Consultant

The focus for this workshop is to build understanding and prepare participants to use the revised standards for world language learning in Wisconsin. Content will be relevant to classroom teachers, world language department Chairs, instructional coaches, directors of instruction, and educator effectiveness evaluators. 

Contemporary world language classrooms prepare students to be world-ready with functional language proficiency, intercultural skills and global competence. This workshop will help educators prepare to plan and facilitate learning with the revised Wisconsin Standards for World Languages. Following an introduction to the standards, participants will deepen and check their understanding through collaborative tasks. 

Participants are encouraged to bring curriculum, units, performance assessments, or lesson plans for individual or group standards-based instructional planning. Time will be dedicated for that purpose in the afternoon.
