Watch this edWebinar as Melanie Rogers, M.Ed., Training Team Lead of Rosetta Stone Education, discusses strategies on how to engage monolingual students with a world language education at home.
World language educators have one goal: to develop students’ ability to communicate in the target language. Over the last 30 years, the field of world language education has undergone a major paradigm shift, moving away from verb conjugation charts, grammar rules, and vocabulary lists toward student-centered activities that provide target language input in a meaningful and authentic way. It’s even harder to do it in a remote setting in times like now. During this edWebinar, viewers will learn about:
- The benefits of bilingualism
- The advantages of early immersion
- Cultural responsiveness
- The importance of parental involvement and how to engage the parents to get their children speaking
- Providing engagement strategies for your monolingual students while at home
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
