Join us this summer for a 5-day workshop offered in French, specifically designed to meet the needs of French Dual Language Immersion teachers, new and already trained! This workshop is made possible thanks to the FACE Foundation (The French-American Cultural Exchange) in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and the Second Language Teaching and Research Center (L2TReC) at the University of Utah.
When: July 8-12, 2019
Where: University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT
Who: This workshop addresses teachers working in all French dual language and
immersion model types (50/50; 90/10; and full immersion).
Application deadline: March 31, 2019.
The workshop has three main objectives:
- Empowering new teachers who are starting or joining a French DLI program.
- Presenting new techniques, resources and ideas to already established teachers.
- Building beyond a K-6 program.
Throughout the workshop, participants will work on curriculum development (elementary, secondary and beyond). Resources and curricula will be shared throughout the institute and teachers will develop lesson plans to help open and sustain their programs.
Workshop presenters will come from across the United States (California, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Utah...), showcasing their experience in a variety of contexts and with a range of model types.
Registration Fee: $150.
Hotel (based on double occupancy), breakfast and lunches will be covered for out of state participants. A single supplement at $65 per night is available for those participants wanting a solo room. Lunches for in-state teachers are included with the workshop.
