Webinar: “Take a Walk in Their Shoes”: A Simulated Science Lesson (in German!), Dr. Barbara Kennedy
When did you last walk in the shoes of your language learners and experience a content lesson delivered in a language you do not understand? How about in a virtual learning environment? Now is your chance! Come engage in a science lesson delivered in German (no knowledge of German required!). Discover for yourself how targeted teaching techniques and explicit learner behaviors come together to make language and content learning come alive. Leave with a long list of strategies for immediate use in your virtual, hybrid, and/or face-to-face classroom.
