Conference in the Clouds
Conference in the Cloud is an incredible opportunity for language teachers from all over the world to experience acquisition-driven teaching strategies first hand through observing teachers teaching their students in their classrooms (different ages and levels of French, Spanish, Latin, and Mandarin), participating in classes as a student, and engaging in workshops to help you learn valuable strategies and teaching techniques. Zumba and yoga classes are offered throughout the day to keep you moving! Lunchtime discussions and evening social hours allow you to connect with other participants and make new friends.
I will be presenting on “Reading our First Class novel” and “Connecting Novices to Cultures and Communities”
