NAATPl 3rd Biennial Workshop for Polish Language Teachers
Standard-Based Approaches to Teaching Polish Language
May 11, 2019
Organized by: Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago
Location: Chicago, IL (Specific location, TBA)
This workshop will bring together instructors to share their practices and materials, as they relate to teaching Polish. The focus of this workshop will be on standard-based approaches to teaching language, especially alongside ACTFL (American Council of Teachers of Foreign Language, www.actfl.org) proficiency and world-readiness standards. This workshop will serve as a forum for exchange of the most successful topics, projects, and syllabi from the most recent years of teaching, across participants’ institutions.
The workshop will consist of individual or group presentations, 20 minutes in length.
There will be one panel dedicated especially to K-12 Polish language teaching, including Saturday Schools, and the committee asks that papers submitted for this panel be noted as such in their proposal.
We invite all Polish language instructors to apply to present at the workshop, however, presenting is not a requirement, as we also encourage attendance in order to learn from practices of other instructors. Continue reading
