In-Service Conference on The Teaching of Foreign Languages
2017 Fall In-Service Conference
MU is joining PSMLA again for their annual fall conference at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg (Hershey Area) as a sponsor of the pre-conference workshop, Connecting the Standards: Approaching Communities, Cultures, and Communication through Everyday Activities. The workshop is led by Megan Flinchbaugh and Nathan Campbell, language teachers at Manheim Central High School and organizers of the Association of World Language Educators (AWLE). Educators will go home with strategies for engaging students, families, schools, and communities to promote the continued study of languages. Participants will receive ready-to-use tools that connect the target language and cultures to all stakeholders. The workshop will provide ample time to collaborate with peers, plan lessons, and create new materials. In the afternoon, the group will be transported for a tour of the Capitol Building and an opportunity to interact with state officials.
Please join us also for the conference itself on Friday and Saturday, October 6 and 7. Given the conference location near Harrisburg and the unique collaboration with the Pennsylvania Council for International Education (PACIE), there will be a special focus on advocating for language programs, integrating global education into the curriculum, and practical takeaways relevant to all K-16+ educators and administrators. For more information and to register, please visit the PSMLA conference website.
