Fun Formative Assessments in the Second Language Classroom from the ACTFL National Teacher of the Year-EXHIBITOR SESSION (ACTFL)

As we move into the second year of a global pandemic, it’s becoming more challenging than ever to keep and hold student engagement throughout class time. Simultaneously, there’s more pressure than ever to bring students to unprecedented levels of language acquisition within short amounts of time as second language programs across the country are having to justify their program’s existence and worth to parents, administrators, and students themselves. What are second language teachers supposed to do?! One solution is to bring a little fun into the classroom on a daily basis. This session will focus on ways to have fun while also assessing student abilities in the target language. As we’re all living through the same pandemic our students are, special emphasis will be placed on fun for the instructor – not just the students. Attendees will leave the session with fun formative assessment ideas for their classroom during the pandemic and (hopefully) beyond.
