Literacy in the 21st Century Foreign Language Classroom
Overview and Purpose
Welcome and thank you for taking this mini-course!
By the time most students begin learning a second language in school, they already know how to read, write, speak, and listen in their natural language. However, foreign language instruction needs to include time dedicated to reviewing literacy in order to help students progress in the acquisition of the target language. To stay relevant with the trends in 21st century education, I will be talking about how to address second language literacy in the classroom and demonstrating select websites that Modern Language teachers can use as tools to complement their instruction or add to a flipped classroom, all in accordance with the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) national standards.
