Sixth Annual SLA Summer Workshop Image

Sixth Annual SLA Summer Workshop

Mark Knowles - Thursday, August 14, 2014

We are pleased to announce that ALTEC's sixth annual Summer Second Language Acquisition Workshop will take place on from 1:00 to 3:00, Thursday - Tuesday, August 14 through August 19 at Hellems 152. This year we will again be looking at key issues in comprehensible input and teaching listening comprehension and we will explore some ways to make technology work towards that goal. We will also look at the teaching of reading and how some of the same metacognitive strategies that are put into play for listening can also apply to the skill that sets them on the road to literary discovery. Finally, there will be a discussion on novel ways to assess listening and reading.Please let me know if you have any questions, and while we are still two weeks from graduation, I hope everyone has a great end of the semester and a wonderful summer.
