Connect with us in Orlando For over 50 years, EF has been working toward one global mission: Opening the World Through Education. Together with educators worldwide, we provide 21st century learning experiences that promote critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and global competence. Teaching these skills is essential—teaching them in London, Paris, or Beijing is transformative. APPLY FOR EF’S 2017 PROFESSIONAL LEARNING SCHOLARSHIP

Apply for the chance to travel with educators from across the U.S. to Helsinki, Finland. There you’ll explore the foundation and future of education through the lens of Finnish education. From there travel to Milan, Italy, where you’ll join educators and students from across North America and Europe for a two-day leadership conference focused on the Future of Food. Hear from our keynote— former career chef, bestselling author, and television host and producer, Anthony Bourdain—and other world-renowned speakers as you participate in expert-led professional learning workshops and rethink education’s role in this important global issue. Stop by our booth to apply, or contact JoAnne Sanderlin at joanne.sanderlin@ef.com or Alina Puentes at alina.puentes@ef.com.

THREE WAYS TO CONNECT WITH US AT SCOLT:

1. Stop by the Scolt Sponsors and Patrons Business Meeting and Reception We’re proud to be sponsoring Friday’s evening reception. Be sure to say hello!

2. Visit us at Booth G Meet with members of the EF team to discuss how you can bring your foreign language curriculum to life through educational travel.

3. Check out our session: Gloom or Boom? Professional Development that Inspires and Energizes Join Annette Galindo of St. Edward’s School and George Stewart of EF Educational Tours to explore how you can connect your classroom to the world of your target language. You’ll leave with new ideas for how to build a network of enthusiastic language teachers while satisfying the need to earn CEUs (Professional Development hours/units), or continue your graduate studies while reinvigorating your own language skills.

YOHANNA JIMÉNEZ

The SCOLT Board of Directors would like to warmly welcome you to fun and sunny Orlando! We are so glad you are here to explore this year’s theme, Languages: Your Global Fast Pass. Many have the misconception that Orlando is just theme parks and tourists, but there is a rich cultural and linguistic diversity in the Central Florida area that makes it special and unique for all to discover. Just like we do for our students in our classrooms, we must open hearts and minds to see beyond stereotypes and to appreciate the products, practices and perspectives of others. At the Sponsor and Patron Reception on Friday night, we hope to do just that as you will have the opportunity to see another side of Florida at the Orange County Regional History Center. We are so grateful that you are here at the 2017 SCOLT conference as it is exceedingly more and more important that we, as a profession, collaborate, connect and build a stronger community of language educators. There are so many people to thank for making this conference possible. The Florida Foreign Language Association: I am excited and proud that my home state language organization is partnering with SCOLT to provide outstanding sessions, services and support throughout the conference, as well as some kind, friendly hospitality.

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 where we look forward to meeting you and to answering your questions.

FFLA is delighted to have  SCOLT in Florida for the first time in many years and to strengthen our relationships with other southern region associations as we all work toward advancing the world language profession.   This year is an extra special occasion as we co-host this year’s conference with our long-time FFLA member, Linda Markley, as SCOLT president.   I thank David Jahner, Linda Markley, and the SCOLT board for all of their hard work in designing this conference as a purposeful and innovative professional development experience. I encourage you to actively participate in sessions and interact with publishers and exhibitors so that you return to the classroom invigorated with new ideas to share with colleagues and administrators about the value of world languages.  Finally, may your professional growth at SCOLT 2017 help you show your students that languages and intercultural competence are their “Global Fast Pass” to a life full of personal and professional success.     Sincerely, Mary Risner 2017 FFLA President, University of Florida

Paula Renzi-Callaghan, The University of Alabama; Kelilah Anders, John Champe High School

Do you know the difference between BIG C and little c in Culture? Do you know what the 3 P’s are? If you answered NO to either or both of these questions, then this workshop is especially for YOU! We will explain the difference between the “C’s” and discuss the 3 P’s, providing examples of all 3. This is an interactive session in which attendees will walk out with ways in which to teach culture focusing on the BIG C’s.

While many high schools and universities have adopted Communicative Language Teaching in language instruction, textbooks, however, provide grammar-centered tests, making it hard for teachers to completely implement CLT in testing. A French Graduate Teaching Assistant from The University of Alabama and a French teacher from John Champe High School in Aldie, VA will discuss their methodology of creating a CLTcentered test; student outcomes; student feedback; and, provide test samples. Presentation is in English with supporting documents in French.

Are You on Target? Connecting Proficiency Principles with Learning Targets

SATURDAY | MARCH 18

Thomas Sauer, AdvanceLearning Many teachers wonder if this is the right activity or objective they should be focusing on today? Developing learning targets is not something that can happen the night before class, but requires careful planning at a number of different levels. However, it is at this stage perhaps the most important of all the different ways planning happens. Reviewing and expanding on foundational concepts, this session will make the case for the importance of learning targets while planning for learning.

Using Authentic Cultural Texts to Examine Perspectives on the Roles of Women Ruth Owens, Arkansas State University This session shares a brief culture-based unit focusing on the roles of women in 1950’s Cuba and Spain. Several authentic cultural texts, all free and widely available, are used to compare practices and analyze perspectives regarding both the expectations and the actions of women in each country during that era. The cultural texts, including two videos, a song and accompanying song lyrics, also serve as points of departure for in-depth classroom interpersonal and presentational communication at the intermediate level.

Linguistics in K-16 World Language Instruction: Creating a Culture of Inquiry

AP Central - Your Fast Pass to Success!

Stephanie Knouse, Furman University

There is a wide variety of free resources available on AP Central for the eight AP World Language and Culture courses and their exams. In this presentation, learn how to navigate around AP Central to discover where to find these resources and how to use them to inform , support, and strengthen your AP World Language and Culture program.

This session features how world language (WL) educators can design and implement lessons, class activities, and collaborative projects that encourage learners to become experts and researchers in linguistics. By incorporating content such as language ideology, dialectology, bilingualism, and sociolinguistics, educators can expose students to key linguistic issues that are typically absent from K-16 language classes. Preliminary evidence suggests that the content and strategies presented in this session can motivate WL learners of all levels and help educators develop global citizens.

Albert Fernandez, St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School A student once told me that she “loved that we don’t learn anything in class.” As she said this, she was writing and illustrating an original comic in the TL. Her comment taps into a movement in language teaching that focuses less on grammar and more on using the language to communicate in and out of the classroom. Learn about techniques, strategies, and activities that can move students away from grammar-based and into the world of real language users.
