NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Welcome to our NECTFL webinar program! We begin for the third year in a row with a webinar specifically designed for our newest colleagues: student teachers, methods class members, new hires, or teachers in their first three years. There is no charge for this webinar, but we encourage you to join NECTFL so you can attend all the others in the series! All webinars will be based on the criteria of the TELL Project -- Teacher Effectiveness in Language Learning -- a framework that "provides a common language and definition of the model world language teacher": the teacher YOU can be!
REGISTER NOW! “TELL ME! about effective lesson planning” WILL BE HELD TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, FROM 5-6 P.M.
As you return to the classroom and the office, be sure to consult this outstanding publication for useful, well-written articles and peer reviews of world language materials and resources!
Two of the articles in this issue focus on literacy—media literacy at all levels and information literacy in foreign language education. The third article discusses ideas to improve student motivation through autonomous learning choices.
Reviews of books and other products appearing in this issue are of special interest to teachers of Arabic, French, Italian, Latin, and Spanish.
An attractive certificate with our embossed NECTFL seal and logo, listing the student's name, language and culture studied, school name + city/state. NECTFL information provided so you can create a press release and promote your program and its successes!
