ACTFL Webinars Developing Learners’ Performance—Aiming toward Proficiency

Arnold Bleicher, ACTFL Consultant, Ashland, OR
Stephanie Dhonau,
University of Arkansas-Little Rock
Fernando Rubio, University of Utah

How does Performance point toward Proficiency? Instruction is always looking ahead to the targeted proficiency level, while supporting and developing learners’ performance through a controlled context. Presenters will provide an overview to the proficiency levels of Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, and Superior and will explore the implied instructional emphases that will help language learners move from one level to the next.

Guiding Language Performance through Novice into Intermediate
Arnold Bleicher

What are the key characteristics of Intermediate level proficiency? What should I be working on with my language learners to help them move out of the Novice level and into the Intermediate level? Learn specific strategies for developing, practicing, and assessing communication to guide learners from Novice into the Intermediate range of performance. Focusing on what a student "can do", this webinar will include practical applications to help you guide students into the Intermediate range.

RSVP by March 10 to Lunch will be served.

Organized by the Institute for Language Education in Transcultural Context (ILETC). This event is the first in a two-part series that will continue with the ACTFL Webinar 2 organized by ILETC on March 27, 2014.
