We are pleased to announce an exciting new international opportunity for graduate level studies. James Madison University (JMU) and the University of Salamanca (USAL) are offering a Dual Master’s Degree in Education, with a concentration in Spanish Language and Culture for Educators and Teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Language (SLC). The program is an 18-month commitment in which students spend one summer at JMU, one summer at USAL, and three additional academic semesters (fall, spring, fall) in online classes at the students’ home locations. We anticipate that graduates of the program will be able to find jobs in a variety of fields, including teaching, business, hospitality, government, and non-profit. All courses taught by JMU will be in English, and all courses taught by USAL will be in Spanish. The 36-credit graduate program enables students to: • Teach Spanish as a second/foreign language (no licensure) • Learn about the Spanish culture and language • Master their Spanish speaking, listening, and writing skills Doctoral-level instructors from James Madison University and the University of Salamanca teach all courses in the program. Both universities offer excellent on-campus facilities, including classroom, computing, and social space for all students. The application deadline for the first cohort (2015-2016) is March 15, 2015.       You  can  find  detailed  program  information  at:       http://www.jmu.edu/slcmasters     If you would like more information, please contact the program director, Dr. Diane Wilcox, at wilcoxdm@jmu.edu or 540-568-6707 or the program coordinator, Diana Meza, M.S.

SCOLT Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues, On behalf of the SCOLT Board of Directors, I am honored to welcome you to the 2015 SCOLT Conference. This year’s conference,  “All that glitters is SCOLT - 50 years of language teaching and learning,” could not occur without the collaborative efforts of our partners, FLAG, SEALLT, and ACTFL.  We are grateful for their support as well as the support we have received from various donors, exhibitors, presenters, and our many Sponsors and Patrons.   SCOLT is celebrating its golden anniversary in the city where it all began fifty years ago!  From 1965 through 1967, the founding conferences took place in Atlanta.  During these initial conferences, the focus of the program was to acquaint teachers and administrators from the elementary through college levels with modern techniques of foreign language teaching.   In 2015, we are proud to offer over 225 presenters and over 150 sessions and workshops that continue to focus on a variety of issues related to our profession.

On Thursday, many leaders from our state associations and guests from the region and nation will gather for the workshop: Inspiring, Engaging and Transforming through Leadership. Special guests include Bill Rivers from JNCL/NCLIS, Marty Abbott and Jacque Van Houten from ACTFL, and Ruta Couet from NCSSFL.  The purpose of this collaborative workshop is to share how our various organizations go about identifying and supporting language-related initiatives and leaders and seeking where areas of collaboration may exist.  These efforts help maintain the momentum towards a shared vision of the role of languages in creating globally competent citizens.   Our keynote speaker, Carmen Agra Deedy, will impress you with her gift of storytelling.  About the same time that SCOLT came into existence, Carmen arrived in the United States as a refugee from Cuba and settled in the Atlanta area.  She is the perfect speaker for our conference, as she blends her cultural and linguistic experiences to create award-winning stories.   We are confident that she will captivate you during her keynote address at 9:30 am on Friday at our Opening General Session.  At our Award’s Luncheon on Friday, we will bestow Marty Abbott with the Founder Award.  She is a role model for many of us, and her efforts in the support and promotion of World Languages over the years have propelled our efforts in making language learning more respected in schools across the nation. We now live in a connected world and knowing how to communicate in multiple languages is crucial.   Later on Friday, current SCOLT Sponsors and Patrons are cordially invited to attend our Annual Business Meeting and Reception, which will take place in the Delta Flight Museum.  Come celebrate with us! Language learning has changed a great deal since SCOLT started with an idea conceived by Herman Bostick and others 50 years ago.   Our organization, the Southern Conference on Language Teaching, is brightly shining today because of the many Founders, Sponsors, and Patrons.  So many individuals have been loyal to this organization and have served for years in various roles.  This year’s conference will bring together so many individuals who are responsible for SCOLT’s success, as well as emerging leaders of our organization.  Finally, we are also thankful for ALL our 2015 SCOLT Conference attendees, for your passion and commitment to the profession.  Each of us adds to the dazzling specks of glitter that make SCOLT so golden! Sincerely,

Dimension Co-Editor

Keynote Information Friday, March 6 - 9:30-10:45 AM

Carmen Agra Deedy Carmen Agra Deedy has been writing for children for over two decades. Born in Havana, Cuba, she came to the U.S. as a refugee in 1964. She grew up in Decatur, Georgia, where she lives today. Deedy began writing as a young mother and storyteller whose NPR commentaries on All Things Considered were collected and released under the title, Growing Up Cuban In Decatur, Georgia. The pithy collection of twelve stories soon garnered awards, among them a 1995 Publishers Weekly Best Audio (Adult Storytelling) and a 1996 Parents’ Choice Gold Award. Her children’s books have won numerous awards as well. The Library Dragon received various children’s state book awards and has sold near half a million copies. In 2003 the book was her home state’s choice to represent Georgia at the Library of Congress’s National Book Festival. The Yellow Star was the recipient of the 2001 Jane Addams Peace Association Book Award (Honor), presented to Ms. Deedy at the United Nations by Mrs. Kofi Annan. It also received the 2001 Christopher Award, the 2000 Parent’s Choice Gold Award, the 2001 Bologna Ragazzi Award (for best international children’s book), the 2002 WOW Award (National Literary Association of England), among other notable awards and honors. It has been translated to over a dozen languages. Martina the Beautiful Cockroach was presented with the 2008 Pura Belpre Honor Award, the 2008 NCSS/CBC Notable Social Studies Book Award, the 2008 Best Children’s Books of the Year (Bank Street College of Education), the 2008 International Latino Book Award, the Irma Simonton and James H. Black Award (Honor), the 2008 E.B White Award (Nominee), and the 2009 ALA Odyssey Audio Award (Honor), among others. Deedy’s children’s book, 14 Cows for America, is based on an astonishing gift Americans received from a Maasai village in Kenya, following the events of 9/11. The book was released in September of 2009 and is a New York Times Bestseller. The Wall Street Journal described it as a  “ . . . moving and dramatically illustrated picture book.” She has now expanded into the world of chapter books with The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale. This is a story of deception, intrigue, and derring-do that reveals the unlikely alliance between a cheese-loving cat and the Cheshire Cheese inn’s mice in Victorian England. Fans of Carmen’s work will be delighted to know that the sequel to The Library Dragon was released in August 2012. The Return of the Library Dragon brings us back to Sunrise Elementary School and the Library Dragon we have all come to know and love. One the eve of her retirement, some shocking changes happen in her library that bring out the dragon in her. Deedy has spent the past twenty years writing and telling stories. She has been an invited speaker at venues as varied as The American Library Association, Refugees International, The International Reading Association, Columbia University, The Smithsonian Institute, TED, The National Book Festival, and the Kennedy Center. An ardent supporter of libraries, she was the 2008 National Spokesperson for School Library Media Month (AASL). She has spoken before Noble Laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners, CEOs of major corporations, and heads of state. Over a span of twenty years, Deedy has told stories to hundreds of thousands of school children. They remain her favorite audiences.

SCOLT Awards & Honors Educator of Excellence Award

President’s Award for Leadership

Dr. Sabine Smith

Pamela Benton

Kennesaw State University It is with humility and gratefulness that I accept

this prestigious award, - and I do so in recognition

and celebration of my many mentors, colleagues, and students who have taught me over the years.

As a non-native speaker of English who came to this country driven by a passion for learning and as the only one in my family to have immigrated to the US and to hold a graduate degree, I am but

one example of the bountiful opportunities afforded those who choose education. Rounding out my

30th year of teaching, I still look joyfully forward to

work every day, eager to share my love for learning, and grateful to the diverse constituencies I serve.

To join the group of distinguished educators hon-

ored by this award is a privilege indeed. If my colleagues’ amazing talent and professional dedication have inspired me throughout the years, may this award serve to encourage and reassure oth-

ers in pursuit of education as a career. Thank you, SCOLT, for your ongoing support!

John Quincy Adams said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” These words are particularly meaningful to me as I am humbled and honored to be the first recipient of the President’s Award for Leadership at SCOLT’s 50th Anniversary Celebration in Atlanta. It seems like yesterday that I attended my first SCOLT conference and was dazzled by the inspiring presentations and speakers.  I have loved being part of awards ceremonies, Leadership Luncheons, the Teacher of the Year Competition and presenting and attending workshops.  Networking at SCOLT has led to improvements to our practices in Florida, wonderful keynote speakers at the Florida Foreign Language Association Conference and continuous regeneration with fresh ideas for my personal teaching and the learning of my students.  SCOLT has helped me learn and grow as an educator and as a leader.  I have been inspired by my experiences at SCOLT and I hope to continue to strive to help others find inspiration to dream, learn, do, and become more.  Thank you for this honor. 


50 years of language teaching and learning Founders Award

Bostick Originator Award

Marty Abbott

Dr. Herman Bostick

It is very humbling for me to receive the SCOLT Founders Award this year. I want to thank the SCOLT Board of Directors for this great honor and I want to congratulate SCOLT on its 50th anniversary! I truly value my long association with the SCOLT region. SCOLT is an excellent example of an organization that serves the needs of its constituents by providing an energizing and innovative platform for professional development and involvement. Throughout my professional life, I have benefitted from the opportunities that SCOLT has provided. Whether it was supporting teachers to attend the SCOLT Conference when I was Language Coordinator in Fairfax County Public Schools (VA) or attending as the ACTFL representative, I have always looked forward to reinvigorating myself professionally—and, of course--connecting with the people who comprise the SCOLT region. The warm reception and friendly atmosphere make the conference a truly enjoyable experience. The SCOLT leadership has been legendary-from Herman Bostick, Joanna Crane, Lynne McClendon, and Lee Bradley—some of the original SCOLTers—to the current energetic and powerful leadership! I am confident that SCOLT will continue to “glitter” well into the future!

Dr. Herman F. Bostick is the originator of SCOLT and served as its first Executive Secretary from 1964-1970, and as SCOLT Executive Director from 1970-1974. Also during this period he founded the Foreign Language Association of Georgia (FLAG) and served as its first president. Subsequently, Dr. Bostick headed departments of foreign languages as Morehouse College (Atlanta), Texas Southern University and Howard University. Dr. Bostick has been a regular supporter of SCOLT conferences and a contributor to SCOLT publications. His desire to encourage new foreign language teachers to develop rewarding professional competence led him to make this award possible. 2015 Award winners will be announced during the SCOLT Awards Luncheon on Friday, March 6.

Previous Bostick Award Recipients: 2014: Barbara Hoover (AR) and Vanessa Shepherd (KY)

2013: Kayley Fidishun Bartlett (NC) and Jessica Garvey (AL)

2012: Dara Fickes (VA) and Sara Kolhoff (FL)

Teaching El burlador de Sevilla in AP Spanish Lit & Culture

Res Ipsa Non Loquitur: Promotional Ideas for Latin Teachers

Exploring the themes, genre, and contexts of the works from the required reading list have become fundamental to student success in the AP Spanish Literature and Culture curriculum. Utilizing Tirso de Molina’s El burlador de Sevilla y convidado de piedra, participants will examine these fundamental elements of the work. Participants will collaborate to develop activities that expound upon the contexts. Finally, participants will design assessments to evaluate student understanding and success in achieving the learning objectives.

The benefits of Latin should certainly speak for themselves, but the reality is that we, as Latin teachers, are the ones who must do the speaking. We have to be proactive about promoting Latin to students, parents, and administrators, and we have to reassure them that Latin is still relevant in the 21st century. This session will explore a wide range of creative publicity initiatives that have been successful both for individual school programs and at the statewide level.

Building Communicative Competence via the 3 Modes

One of the best free tools available to teacher and student is Voicethread. Known as a “group audio blog,” Voicethread allows users to record text and audio comments about uploaded images and documents. Voicethread has two distinct advantages for teaching and learning: it is asynchronous and engaging. This session will demonstrate how to use this tool, show applications in the classroom, offer assessment for students’ participation, and describe tips for teachers to ensure that Voicethread presentations are successful learning activities.

Come join this interactive session to learn how to integrate the 3 modes of communication into all levels of instruction in order to build student proficiencies towards success in AP. The presenter, a recent member of the AP Spanish Language and Culture test development committee, will share engaging strategies that model scaffolding thematic instruction and effective use of authentic materials. Presentation in English, examples in Spanish; appropriate for French, German and Italian.

Carter & Araceli Hernández-Laroche, University of South Carolina Upstate Most educators would agree that we are experiencing a Golden Age of Teaching and Learning with the explosion of educational technologies in the last two decades or so. One implication of this growing body of pedagogical technologies for us has been a greater awareness of the evolution of the traditional classroom.

Everyone is aware of the Latino/Hispanic presence in the United States and the challenges and opportunities this presents for Spanish teachers. In this session we suggest approaches and resources for exploring this presence that go beyond the typical themes of literature and culture. Looking at areas such as U.S. Latino history and Spanish in the U.S. (including so-called “Spanglish”) can provide materials and activities that build communicative and cultural knowledge, and make students think critically about identity, representation and communication.

Interactive exercises are wonderful, lately interactive communication takes place not only at the computer, but with the computer. How communicative and interactive is this? How does it foster communication between cultures? The use of technology needs to serve the purpose of communication, it needs to connect people, help students gain insights into their own cultures and the foreign culture. We will take a look at how technology can help us in the classroom to achieve these goals. Sponsor: SCOLT Strand: Activities and Strategies Applicable Level(s): All

Lead with Languages to Develop Global Competence

Academic language or “classroom” Spanish is insufficient to empower students for today’s marketplace. “Real Language” interdisciplinary activities create genuine exchanges of vernacular language and culture between intermediate Spanish students and native speakers. Students asked to utilize their life skills in interactive, interdisciplinary activity for the acquisition of vernacular language and cultural understanding. The concept is validated by the voice of the students involved reflecting on their experiences in “Real Language” lab sessions.

Make the case for learning languages and ensure that your program creates a generation competent in languages and cultures and equipped to succeed in the 21st century. Global competence is developed and demonstrated in learning environments and daily interactions. To promote the value of learning languages, programs need to develop, practice, and collect evidence of learners’ progress in acquiring global competence. Tap ACTFL resources to “get out the message” and make languages a national, state, and local priority.

Recognizing the African Presence in Latin American Dance

During high-stakes testing periods, the teaching of culture in lower-level classrooms is sometimes tabled, leaving more attention to developing L2 proficiency. Accordingly, this session demonstrates how to visually organize authentic resources using Google Maps. Special attention comes to web pages made by and for Internet users who speak the target language that are accessible to languagelearners of varying proficiencies. We will also cover language tasks based on these Google Maps that will enhance the cultural components of the language classroom.

Many African contributions to culture are often overlooked both in Latin America and in Spanish classrooms. In this presentation, we will pay tribute to the African roots in Latin American dances that have become national symbols and internationally known rhythms. Our musical journey will cover countries from Mexico to Argentina, focusing on the origins and popularity of Afro-Latin dances and carnivals. Attendees will discuss effective ways to incorporate and celebrate the African presence in Latin music in the classroom.

Planning SMART!

There are many tools and methods which educators may use to avoid the use of L1. With technology gaining greater importance in learners’ lives outside of the classroom, technological tools for both teacher and student are reviewed to help in the acquisition of a FL without L1 use.

Communicative and Literacy-Based Language Teaching John M. Zyck, Jr., University of Georgia

As some instructors believe the intent of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) is to prioritize students’ spoken and listening abilities above reading and writing in the foreign/second language classroom, the potential lack of literacy being taught could prove troublesome for these students who take upper-level courses, both at the secondary and post-secondary level. This presentation is an opportunity to discuss how to ensure literacy is promoted in CLT. Sponsor: SCOLT Strand: Program Models Applicable Level(s): HS, Post-secondary, Supervisors

Speaking Up: Techniques for Developing Speaking Ability

Susan Braidi & Maria Amores, West Virginia University Best of WVFLTA - World language students are often frustrated by their inability to speak, while all teachers know that there is a disconnect between what students “know” and what students can produce in speech. By implementing classroom tasks that build students’ speaking ability, we can provide them with the tools to use language outside of the classroom. This session explores various task characteristics that encourage student speaking and demonstrates several classroom activities that are designed specifically to improve student oral production.

Using Authentic Digital Media with Early Language Learners

Getting songs off the internet from the target culture is a great tool for creating CI, but at times the vocabulary or grammar don’t coincide with your needs or the themes are not appropriate for the class. If you know this frustration, consider writing a song yourself ! Using software and instruction given at the session, participants learn to compose and perform simple original songs that suit their curricular needs.

This session examines how authentic digital media (songs, e-books, videos, etc.) benefits world language students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. We will discuss which free Spanish and Latin American resources are available online and how to search for and access them. We will also look at the best ways to engage students with digital media, including effective teaching strategies and preand post-activities.

Targeting Pragmatic Competence in Class through Videos

Students in online language classes often report that their courses do not provide enough contact time with the professor or other students in order to work with the skills and content that they have learned. Many Web 2.0 applications can be used in courses at all levels to spark student interest and to help them interact with each other beyond the curriculum offerings. This presentation will offer some examples and guide participants in implementing these applications in their own classes.

Despite years of studying a language in class, students are not always adequately prepared to navigate simple day-to-day encounters with native speakers. This talk discusses how two different teaching methods affect students’ ability to communicate effectively in a foreign language. We will present a classroom-based study exploring whether Mi Vida Loca — the BBC’s online interactive video program that casts the viewer as the main character of a mystery — can increase learners’ pragmatic competence more than traditional paper-based activities.
