SCOLT Welcome Letter and SCOLT Board

It is a delight to welcome you to this year’s SCOLT Conference, in cooperation with our colleagues in AAFLT and in SEALLT, and held in a city that has long been one of my favorites We are glad to welcome so many friends from ACTFL as well, and we are especially grateful for the way that they are supporting our Southeast regional educators by bringing us two state-of-the-art workshops. And I can’t wait to hear John DeMado at the plenary on Friday morning…I gather it will be a combination of the intellectual thoughtfulness you might find on PBS bundled with the humor of the Comedy Channel…stay tuned! As I look through the program, there are workshops and sessions that I dearly wish to attend – but which my duties will force me to miss! However, with such a selection, I trust that you will find many to meet your needs, increase your arsenal of best practices, and enable you to serve your students even more effectively than you do now. Thanks to all our presenters, and special thanks to our Program Chair, Mirella Hodges, and her committee, JC Morales and Linda Zins-Adams, for putting it all together. We are proud to include two new things for everyone this year: conference-wide wireless internet, and Friday lunch for everyone. Along with our Board, I look forward to this extra opportunity to meet you. In addition, we have something extra for SCOLT Sponsors and Patrons this year: don’t forget to join us on Friday evening for the Annual Business Meeting and Reception, to be held at the Birmingham Museum of Art, a short walk from the hotel. Once the meeting is over, there will be an opportunity to wander through the galleries. We are excited to have a full hall of Exhibitors to provide you with a host of resources. Take advantage of the exhibit breaks to check out new curriculum, technological innovations, travel services, gift ideas, and all kinds of other amenities. Welcome, World Language educators! We trust this year’s conference will indeed enable you to continue to ‘Set the Global Standard.’ SCOLT President, 2012-2013

SEALLT Welcome Letter and SEALLT Board

Dear Attendees, SEALLT is thrilled to continue our partnership with SCOLT and would like to welcome you to Birmingham! For those of you who do not know, SEALLT is a regional group of the International Association for Language Learning Technology (IALLT), a professional organization established in 1965 whose members provide leadership in the development, integration, evaluation and management of instructional technology for the teaching and learning of language, literature and culture. While our members consist primarily from Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida, we welcome anyone interested in language learning technology. This year SEALLT has prepared three hands-on workshops and several technology-focused sessions. We hope you will join us at these workshops and sessions to not only learn something new but to also provide assistance and encouragement to implement technology into your classroom. You are also invited to drop by the SEALLT Technology Corner in the exhibit hall (Booth 17) where we look forward to meeting you and to answering your questions. We would also like to invite you to get information on the upcoming IALLT Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at Pine Crest School June 11-15. We are excited to have the conference back in our region again and would love to see you there. Over the next couple of days, I hope you have a productive and enlightening conference. I look forward to meeting you.

On behalf of the Alabama Association of Foreign Language Teachers, we would like to welcome you to the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex and to the SCOLT/AAFLT/SEALLT joint conference. As this is the first time that we have partnered with SCOLT to host their conference since 2004, this is a special occasion. We are happy to have you back in Alabama. David Jahner and the SCOLT Board of Directors have worked tirelessly and energetically to organize this conference and I hope that you will profit from the broad range of workshops and sessions that will be taking place over the next few days. Be sure to visit the representatives of the publishers and foreign language resource companies who will be sharing both during special exhibitor sessions and in the exhibits hall the latest materials and information available to us as world language educators. We are certainly looking forward to hearing the keynote speech Thursday evening by John DeMado, sponsored by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. He will have you laughing, remembering why you wanted to teach a world language, and considering best practices. I’m sure that the SCOLT patrons and sponsors will enjoy the reception that awaits you at the Birmingham Museum of Art Friday evening. You will be enchanted by the Chihuly Persian wall glass sculptures, the Eugenia Woodward Hitt Collection of 18th century French furniture, the Red Mountain Garden Club Memorial Garden figural art created by Auguste Rodin, Fernando Botero, among others, and one of the largest collections of Wedgwood ceramics in the world, as well as the other exhibits. On behalf of the presidents of the Alabama chapters of ACA, AATF, AATG, and AATSP, we welcome you to join our Saturday affiliate breakfast meetings which are AAFLT’s tradition. We’ll do some business and then enjoy speakers, literary readings and discussions. We’d be honored if those of you from other states would join us. We hope that those of you in French will enjoy our “Best of Alabama” speaker, Sandrine Hope, as she presents “Passé Composé – dans la classe multimédiatique.” We also hope that you will choose to participate in a post-conference, immersion workshop for teachers offered by some of our state’s best instructors in French, German and Spanish. Have a rewarding time of fellowship, creativity, and renewal during the conference. May you return home energized for class Monday! Best regards,

Marlin Harris, President

Common Core Standards Through World Languages: Developing Literacy for 21st Century Learners Paul Sandrock, ACTFL

Emphasizing the three modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational), participants will learn to develop students’ literacy as described in the Common Core State Standards. They will examine the crosswalk between the Common Core State Standards and the national language standards and experience and analyze numerous strategies that explicitly build students’ skills in interpretive listening and reading, presentational writing, and interpersonal listening and speaking. They will also identify approaches that simultaneously develop 21st century skills in media literacy, applications of technology, and collaboration while engaging and motivating students at all levels.

Growing Teacher Effectiveness: The TELL Project Greg Duncan, InterPrep, Inc.; Alyssa Villarreal, Memphis City Schools, TN

If what the teacher does is the most important variable in student achievement (as abundant research suggests), what is it that effective world language teachers do? What are the strategies that effective teachers employ to plan, to teach, and to assess? How do effective world language teachers collaborate with stakeholders, and how do they continue to grow as professionals? These are among the questions that will be addressed in this workshop using products and processes from the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning (TELL) Project. Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of those characteristics that effective language teachers evidence, to self-assess based on TELL criteria and to explore ways to enhance their own journey toward greater effectiveness as a teacher of languages.

Wit and Wisdom with John DeMado: In Search of Language

John DeMado, sponsored by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt What exactly is this elusive commodity known as ‘language’? And how does the human mind create and acquire it? It is encountered throughout humanity… In fact, no mute tribe has ever been discovered. Place two humans together anywhere in the galaxy, and it seems to bubble up spontaneously. It is missing only in those who suffer profound disability. Yet, so much of what is said and written about the linguistic phenomenon is shrouded in hypothesis; a veritable mystery locked within a riddle. In an attempt to respond to these and other provocative linguistic questions, this address will cite the work of 3 prominent researchers: Steven Pinker (Harvard University), Larry Selinker (New York University) and Stephen Krashen, (University of Southern California). Be prepared to laugh heartily and to reflect profoundly. Sponsor: SCOLT Language of Presentation: English Applicable Language(s): All Applicable Level(s): All

Don’t miss John DeMado’s Keynote Speech during the General Session 9:15 am- 10:15 am

Why I Don’t Teach Math… A Salute to Language Teachers World Language teachers are among the most colorful educators in the world. We are opinionated, volatile, emotional... and generally imbued with the capacity to find humor even in the most dire of circumstances. We are singularly patient with those around us who haven’t a clue as to the role of second language acquisition in the American curriculum. We are patient with the mythologies that propound the notion that functioning in more than one language is somehow outside the scope of the American mind. We are tenacious. The fact that ours is the only culture in the world where one can be monolingual and still be considered literate does not deter us from our mission of celebrating diversity. We are risk-taking. Each and every one of us has dared to acquire the language and assume the culture of at least one other linguistic group. We’ve traveled the world in search of diversity... allowed ourselves to be vulnerable... and learned to respect the value of intuition. We are optimistic... even in the face of absurdity. Like mythical Sisyphus, so often we push the rock up the hill only to have it roll back down. Even so, we adopt the stance offered up by Camus when he reminds us to “imagine Sisyphus happy.” Through passion, humor, visuals, handouts and song, this keynote seeks to celebrate what it means to be a World Language teacher. Benefits to the participant: Laughter… and the courage to take risks. Thank you to Houghton Mifflin-Harcourt for making it possible for John to be at this year’s conference! 13

What Can Textbooks Published in Foreign Countries Contribute? Clara Krug, Georgia Southern University

Textbooks published abroad offer: 1. Recordings of authentic situations in the target language to develop students’ listening and speaking proficiency. 2. Authentic written documents from various cultures to develop reading proficiency. 3. Authentic written communication to serve as models for composition assignments. 4. A focus on the inductive method of learning grammar. 5. Teachers’ guides that reinforce the focus on students as the center of the learning process.

No More Fears: How the First Day of Class (and beyond) Can Change Your Students’ Attitudes Towards Speaking L2

Devon Hanahan, College of Charleston, SC What is our ultimate goal as language teachers? We want our students to speak! We want them to listen! We want them to communicate! The problem is that while many students can manage written material, even the best students suffer a degree of fear about speaking the target language in the classroom. What you do and say on the first day of class can conquer that fear for them and make them unafraid to speak up in class. This session guides you through the first day of class and offers further practical hints on lowering the affective filter in your classroom all semester/year long.

Use “Speaking in Tongues” to Advocate World Language Study Among Students, Parents and Decision Makers” Linda Paragone, Columbia HS, AL

Would most of your students say that they are studying the target language only to meet a diploma requirement? Is your district paring down the variety of language offerings due to budget cuts because it doesn’t have a true understanding of the skills Americans need to succeed in the 21st century? Do some of your students believe that only a small number of students can learn the less popular languages? In this session you will be able to watch some clips from the film, Speaking in Tongues, and you will also explore the resources available through the film’s website to become a convincing advocate for foreign language study. Showing clips of this film may even motivate your own students to take more ownership of their studies. At the very least, they will realize the importance of an immersion classroom and the role of active listening in the language acquisition process.

You might teach twenty-four hours in only two minutes, but when we chant, “Mirror, mirror on the wall...,” your students might think you are the most unique teacher of all. Examples are in Spanish, but any modern language can adapt. Best of Georgia Language of Presentation: English Applicable Language(s): All Applicable Level(s): MS, HS, Postsecondary

Online Translators and Second Language Writing Errol O’Neill, University of Memphis, TN Online translation (OT) sites, such as Free Translation or Babel Fish, are freely available to the general public and purport to convert text instantly from one language to another. A study was conducted to investigate the effects of OT use. L2 students in French using an online translator performed as well as, and in some cases better than, the control group on composition tasks, both in overall scores and on specific linguistic features, including comprehensibility, content, spelling, and grammar.

Spanish Pronunciation: Legends, Myths and Common Mistakes

Alyssa Villarreal, Memphis City Schools, TN

W8 2:15 pm - 4:15 pm

041 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm 

Roberto Mayoral Hernández, University of Alabama at Birmingham Most language teaching methods tend to put emphasis on grammar and usage, but there is little to no emphasis on pronunciation. As a consequence, students transfer the phonology from their native language into Spanish, which results in a heavy accent that frequently fossilizes. This presentation addresses some of the most prominent phonetic features of the Spanish language, and tries to dissipate several myths and legends associated with its pronunciation. At the same time, several resources and activities are provided. Sponsor: SCOLT Language of Presentation: English Applicable Language(s): Spanish Applicable Level(s): All

Educator of Excellence

SCOLT Founder’s Award

Dr. Krista Chambless University of Alabama at Birmingham, AL

Ms. Lynne McClendon, retired SCOLT Executive Director and Foreign Language Coordinator for Fulton County Schools, GA

“I am truly honored to have been chosen as the 2013 SCOLT Educator of Excellence. I would like to thank the awards committee for selecting me from among the many deserving nominees, as well as the AAFLT Board for nominating me. Outside of my family and my church, my commitment to our profession is the most important factor in my life. The opportunity to teach and shape the lives of the next generation of leadership in our country is both a privilege and a tremendous responsibility. I also consider membership and participation in organizations such as AAFLT, SCOLT and ACTFL extremely important to the future of our nation and profession. I thank you for recognizing my work. I am truly humbled and extremely proud to be chosen as this year’s award recipient.”

“It has been my privilege to work with wonderful, dedicated foreign language professionals over the last fifteen years as a part of the SCOLT team. My predecessor, Lee Bradley, was a wonderful mentor and guide and very supportive as I began to assume responsibilities for SCOLT. He and his predecessor, Herman Bostick, had laid such a strong foundation and vision for the organization that I felt it my duty to carry on their efforts, and fortunately, I had wonderful SCOLT Board members who felt equally strong that SCOLT is a vibrant and vital organization. They helped to continue that outlook even branching into many other SCOLT endeavors. It has been a privilege to serve with all of the many SCOLT Executive Boards and to be welcomed and supported by the foreign language professionals attending the SCOLT conferences. I am pleased that so able a leader as David Jahner has assumed the SCOLT Executive Directorship, and I foresee SCOLT reaching new heights under his direction. My thanks to “SCOLTies” everywhere for the great memories!”

Subsequently, Dr. Bostick headed departments of foreign languages as Morehouse College (Atlanta), Texas Southern University and Howard University.

Setting and Assessing Performance Targets Marty Abbott, ACTFL

How do students know where they are going or how close they are to reaching their goals? Learn how to set realistic performance targets and build assessments and units of instruction around them. By identifying targets for students’ language performance, teachers are able to design assessments in which students apply their language skills in real situations. Teachers then can focus instruction on what students need to meet these expectations. Sponsor: SCOLT Language of Presentation: English Applicable Language(s): All Applicable Level(s): All

Teacher-created thematic units provide an inherently interesting context for the teaching of grammar, culture and vocabulary. In this session we explore how a combination of approaches, including use of visuals, TPR, music, sign language, and technology can make a storybased thematic unit comprehensible, interesting and fun.

Con las manos en la masa: aprender español cocinando

Teaching Chinese Pragmatic Competence: Theory and Method

Developing a didactic unit based on a recipe can be a good way to involve students in learning because cooking is an activity known by everybody. Basic and “fresh” ingredients make students enjoy practicing their communicative skills such as speaking and listening. Because food is connected with culture, students will be aware of the differences with the culture of their country. We will present an example of a book chapter prepared for its publication in Spain. Presented in Spanish.

Speaking a language is to perform or doing certain actions (Austin 1962; Searle 1969). Chinese and English speakers differ in their formulation of and response to “speech acts” such as compliments and apologies. This paper discusses theoretical and methodological issues in teaching Chinese pragmatic competence to American college students. It shows that grammatical competence does not guarantee communicative competence. Explicit instruction of speech acts must be given in class. This can improve learners’ communicative skills and raise their pragmatic awareness.

Important Changes Related to Dimension

SCOLT acknowledges the Editorial Review Board for the 2013 edition of Dimension:

As a change to previous years regarding the submission of manuscripts for publication in Dimension, the SCOLT Board approved a new policy to allow authors to submit original work without having presented at the annual conference. Such a change now moves Dimension from a proceedings publication to an edited volume of peer-reviewed research. In the 2013 volume, there are ten articles that offer a cross-section of classroombased inquiry, survey research, and qualitative research on curricular topics, instructional approaches, and pedagogical beliefs and practices.
