Teachers Service Committee (TSC)
Recharge your world language teaching!
Many teachers and students could use a boost in February. We are excited to host Justin Slocum Bailey, Ann Arbor-based teacher-trainer and speaker, to help us do just that through this high-energy, low-pressure workshop.
Justin will share and model…
- ways of capitalizing on students’ interests for maximum buy-in
- several specific lesson ideas that you can use and repeat at any level
- techniques for finding “Flow” in your teaching
- strategies for boosting joy and a sense of community in your classroom
This workshop serves teachers of both modern and classical languages. Instructional coaches and administrators who support language teachers are also encouraged to attend.
