At Friday’s Opening General Session, we will hear from the 2015 Teacher of the Year, Edward Zarrow, a Latin teacher at Westwood High School in Massachusetts. We will also announce the SCOLT Teacher of the Year, present our scholarship winners, and announce the winners of our SCOLT Awards. Finally, we will introduce the new incoming members of the SCOLT Board of Directors, including SCOLT’s first-ever President-Elect. Finally, we will express our gratitude to our retiring Board members. During the lunch break on Friday, there will be special opportunities to hear from leading educators in our field as they take the HOT SEAT to answer your questions about any and all aspects of language teaching and learning. Be sure to check out page 22 in the program as well as attend the opening general session to learn more about this conference innovation.

Darci Gardner & Andrew Augustyniak, Appalachian State University Teaching foreign literature in the target language presents a unique challenge: undergraduates are intellectually prepared to tackle complex cultural and aesthetic questions, but they often lack the language skills necessary to support these types of discussions.

Often when we talk about culture, we tend to discuss food, art, literature, music, and other easily identifiable items, or we read an article in English about a place where the target language is spoken. Learning about culture means building an understanding of the practices, perspectives and products of a society, which is so much more than flags, food, and festivals. How do we teach and assess culture in our classroom while staying in the target language?

Looking for ways to keep your students engaged and talking in the target language? We will share multiple interpersonal speaking strategies that reflect real-world interactions. We will also demonstrate how to scaffold these strategies to meet and challenge the needs of students at multiple proficiency levels.

In this session we explore the use of Twitter and texting in the L2 French classroom as a means of sensitivizing students to phonetic and cultural norms and cross-cultural pragmatics authentically. We begin with a survey of activities involving Twitter and texting that span diverse levels and learning types, e.g. synthesis, decoding, translation, composition. We then discuss set-up and practical implementation. Hands-on opportunities will be provided for attendees to participate in sample activities and begin preparation of their own materials.
