December 10, 2020: Using Personalization to Increase Student Engagement 
with 2019 Virginia World Languages Teacher of the Year, Amy Petersen. 

The next FLAVA Teacher Workshop is scheduled for Thursday, December 10, 2020 (4PM – 6PM) via Zoom. In this workshop, 2019 Virginia World Languages Teacher of the Year, Amy Petersen (Latin Teacher), will explore ways we can expand the use of personalization to motivate students to listen, speak, read, and write in the target language. With the right set-up, students can create much of the classroom content in an engaging way that offers valuable practice without the boredom of drills and pre-created worksheets. The techniques and activities that will be presented in this workshop are adaptable to live, virtual, and hybrid learning. The examples that will be provided can be immediately implemented in any language class.

Participants who register for this workshop (by December 7) will receive an email with the link to this workshop on Zoom prior to the presentation. Participants who complete the brief survey and exit ticket at the end of this workshop will receive a FLAVA certificate of attendance.
