Session 5: Power up the Presentational Mode! April 13
How does proficiency influence instruction in the presentational mode? Let’s explore a variety of ways to plan performance-based lessons that have students communicating in the presentational mode in rich and meaningful ways. Time will be given to work in language- and level-like groups to collaboratively plan performance-based presentational activities for daily lessons.
Presenters: Megan Budke, Karen Nickel & Kara Parker
