iFLT 2016, Webinars, and Back to School: Are you Ready??

Whether you’re able to attend iFLT16 or not, I hope you are planning to watch twitter and the blog-o-sphere for takeaways!  The sessions are so perfectly focused on using really COMPREHENSIBLE input in class… I love this conference and am so blessed to be part of it!

Some things I’ll be sharing:

In a 3.5 hour workshop, I will be talking about how to pull AP themes from novels written for language learners as they bridge from reading novels completely in Spanish designed for them to reading authentic lit.

In a 1.5 hour session, I will be sharing ideas for truly interpersonal speaking.

And in a 1.5 hour session, I will be sharing the nuts and bolts, the nitty-gritty, of using novels in class.  It can be intimidating to plan a novel-centric curriculum, hopefully this session will be a great scaffold to get participants started.

I’m also excited about sessions by my best amigas Martina Bex, Carol Gaab, and Kristy Placido… and sessions by SO MANY incredible, well known and respected presenters!

Our special guests, Bill VanPatten and Stephen Krashen… Of course you don’t want to miss them!  And they’ll even be broadcasting live if you can’t make the conference.  To join remotely, go to http://www.myscas.com on Tues. July 19, at 8:50 am and 1:15 pm EST.

After iFLT we have a great webinar series on using novels effectively. Lots of great ideas from the comfort of your own home!  http://us13.campaign-archive1.com/?u=4d60f21b213f6738a12136c3d&id=6707c89df8

As these wrap up and we get ready to head back to school, Kristy and I are excited to introduce you to our newest novels, Vector- set in modern day Panama and in the construction era, and Hasta la sepultura- set in Salamanca, Spain and Morocco.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and I can’t wait to see you at the conference or on Twitter!
