World Language AE Work Session for Dual Language/Immersion Teachers


This World Language Assessment Example (AE) Work Session for teachers is focused on understanding, utilizing and adapting AEs for use in dual language/immersion programs, K-12, in Cherokee, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Japanese, or Spanish. We will start with an overview of proficiency-based assessment and its role in formative and summative assessment in the classroom. Then, we will work collaboratively to design AEs that can be used immediately in our programs and discuss ways to network with colleagues across the state.
