On the weekend of September 16, 2011, our Alaskans for Language Acquisition conference will be in beautiful Talkeetna. Having read the exchange with Carol Gaab about her sessions, I’m very excited. She’s going to talk about activities to deepen comprehension and how to use pop-up grammar in advanced levels. She plans to show how to use a novel as the source of curriculum and what to do when it works with a textbook. There will be a session geared for elementary teachers, and then there will be a coaching session that focuses on some of what we can easily leave behind when we jump into the TPRS pool.
I can’t wait!
Any “Outsiders” (we call people who live in the Lower 48 – states – outsiders, so don’t take it personally) are welcome to join us. Carol isn’t even the entire conference, but you bet I’m going to be treading in her footsteps!
