Presenters: Carl Blyth (UT Austin) and Anne Lair ( University of Utah)
June 10-11, 2019, University of Utah Campus
The FLLITE project, a collaboration of COERLL (University of Texas at Austin) and CERCLL (University of Arizona), helps teachers to bridge the language/literature divide by developing their own literacy lessons as open educational resources (OER). Rather than focusing on canonical literature, FLLITE lessons focus on the poetics of everyday language (e.g., conversations, letters, blogs, YouTube videos, etc.). in brief, the goal of this workshop is to help foreign language teachers develop original materials based on authentic texts that promote language awareness and communicative abilities through the integration of reading, listening, speaking, and writing tasks.
