The Teaching Foreign Languages K-12 Workshop offers you a dynamic and interactive way to understand and apply current research in foreign language education to evaluate your teaching practice. Each of the eight workshop sessions examines one research topic from the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages National Standards as it applies across languages and skill levels.

The eight video programs feature the work of leading researchers and the reflections of practicing teachers in a lively round-table discussion format. Classroom examples from the Teaching Foreign Languages K-12 video library are shown throughout the workshop videos to illustrate the ideas being discussed. The companion workshop guide provides a stimulating learning experience for individual teachers or professional development study groups.

Become a student yourself as you watch the videos, complete a range of activities in the guide, and prepare to conduct research in your own classroom. For a streamed Web overview of this workshop series, go to Overview Video.
