3 Dear Colleagues, On behalf of the Executive Board of Directors of the Kentucky World Language Association, I wish to welcome you to this year’s KWLA Conference. Continuous professional learning is at the core of being an educator and we send a heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for choosing to attend Kentucky’s largest annual gathering of world language educators and supporters! This year’s conference is going to be exciting. We have over 50 sessions and workshops supporting 14 conference strands. Our highlighted presenters include Jon Valentine from Gwinnett County Public Schools of Georgia, representatives from the National Security Agency and Creative Language Class creators Kara Parker and Megan Smith. And, what conference is complete without the exhibitors and vendors who support second language learning through their products and opportunities. To give direction for this year’s conference, we have chosen the theme of Putting Languages to Work: Career Readiness for the Commonwealth. The educational emphasis across the commonwealth is shifting and career-readiness is the beacon. We hope you will join us in embracing the opportunity to share with decision makers, parents, and students that being bilingual is the up and coming new norm and the absolute career advantage for our Kentucky learners! Let us use our advocacy skills to post and tweet over the next two days the impact of your learning and the power of bilingualism- @kwlaonline #kwla19. Finally, a thank you to all who have helped make this year’s conference a reality. To our dedicated Board and Committee members who have worked tirelessly to give meaning to this year’s conferencemerci! To our Conference Chair, Ben McMaine, the Conference Committee, and our Communications Director, Jennifer Kennedy- your professionalism and follow through are legendary! To our Awards Chair, Ben Hawkins- thank you for giving our award nominees the spotlight they deserve. Lastly, to our Sponsors, thank you for valuing and supporting world language education! In the spirit of bilingualism for all,

President of KWLA

While learning about German immigration to the United States, students identified local nonprofits addressing the topic of German immigration.

Through a voting process, the course determined which organization should be awarded $2,000.

These videos showed how ships in the Mediterranean rescue refugees, for example, and how immigrants live in Germany.

Friday 10:00 AM-10:50 AM Darby Dan F105 Embodied Cognition: A Positive Learning Strategy For SLA Emma Bricker - runningprofe@gmail.com Description: Students who play while learning are more engaged, therefore more likely to remember content. Empirical experience illustrates that combining positive affect; being happy, amused, or helping another, with physical manifestations, aids in SLA, with the most outstanding outcome being the complete engagement of students. The obvious enjoyment of acquiring language, with the ability to put it to use, is a benefit of the mind-body connection impossible to ignore. Immediate feedback of conversation underscores the effectiveness, reinforcing the contribution of each learner to the environment. Come learn and practice techniques that maximize the mind-body connection while expanding learners’ proficiency levels!

24 followed by extensive drills. Such teaching techniques are facing serious challenges (Huang & Huang, 2015). Sousa (2017) claims “that many teachers are entering the profession with a kitbag of strategies from the 1980s to work with students who have 21st century brains”. Education through entertainment (“Edutainment”) involves learners participating in digital activities such as games under the supervision of their teachers. Edutainment is being extensively researched in an effort to develop effective student-centered pedagogies using emerging technologies. Empirical studies have demonstrated that digital games effectively promote language learning (Hui Zhang, 2018). Researchers have argued that through language learners can benefit significantly from gameplaying as it can promote constructive, situated, and experiential learning (Squire 2008; Woo, 2014). However, significant work is still required to provide clear answers with respect to innovative and effective learning practices for digital games.

Being comfortable with ambiguity and grey areas is part of what researchers call "executive functions" - and these executive functions can be taught! This session will explore different problem areas in the classroom (i.e. “my students are struggling to focus themselves in my classroom” or “they want to search for everything I’m saying in the internet”), and we will identify the executive functions needed to combat these problems. We will then discuss ways of teaching executive functions without disrupting the content/curricular goals of the classroom. When we aim to not only teach the L2 content of our lessons, but also to teach to the executive functions that our learners need support in, our students are better able to “roll with” our L2 classrooms and gain skills that will serve them beyond their experiences with us. I Can Statements: - I can identify one executive function my students need support in in my L2 classroom. - I can brainstorm and create one way I could teach to communicate and support this EF to my students.
