What it is:

The 7 Steps to a Language-Rich, Interactive Foreign Language Classroom are research-based strategies designed to increase comprehensible input and provide low-stress opportunities for language output and interaction. These practical techniques provide an essential foundation that ensures students are motivated and engaged, while offering access points to any target language in a way that is easy to implement and comprehensively scaffolded. This training was created for both novice and seasoned LOTE teachers to transform the foreign language classroom into an interactive environment in which students are engaging in the target language from day one.  

Participants will learn: 

  • Experience-based classroom strategies (via simulations) in multiple foreign languages 
  • Innovative ways to use visuals and vocabulary as tools for building comprehension 
  • Easy-to-implement structures for speaking, reading, and writing in the target language 
  • Research-based, practical techniques from the new book, 7 Steps to a Language-Rich, Interactive Foreign Language Classroom: Strategies for Teachers of Languages other Than English (LOTE)
