Putting Proficiency into Practice

with Greg Duncan

Institute Abstract:

With the highly anticipated changes in the newly adopted TEKS for LOTE, the TFLA Summer Institute aims to shine a practical light on proficiency based teaching and how that looks from day to day in the classroom. These three days are designed to support teachers’ use of principles of proficiency to guide every aspect of teaching and learning in the modern LOTE classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding about and sharpen their skills sets on how to ensure that implementation of the new TEKS will lead students to ever-increasing levels of proficiency.

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops, tablets and/or smart devices along with any textbooks or course materials that would aid in working and creating materials to implement in the coming year.
