ACTFL 2012/research request

I attended a very interesting research session led by Richard Donato and the amazing Judith Liskin-Gasparro yesterday with a number of other TPRS folks here at ACTFL. I’ll tell you more later, but the gist of it was that ACTFL wants to research “high-leverage practices” that can be taught to student teachers to improve our world language classrooms.

The exciting part was that they are looking for practices similar to what TPRS/CI teachers strive to do. Here’s a link to Richard Donato’s Startalk powerpoint about what we need to be doing in our classrooms. I think you’ll find that TPRS teachers are in tune with him!
