Workshop Description

The REFLECTIONS World Language Teachers’ Workshop is for teachers of all levels, from the elementary to the university level. Recent research, published studies, the 2012 American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines and the South Carolina Standard for World Language Proficiency (June 2013) have all addressed the topic of demonstrating proficiency in a world language. This information led workshop coordinators to choose a focus that is twofold:  Designing a curriculum to build life language skills and to kindle communication for all language learners.

The facilitator of this year’s workshop is Linda Egnatz, the 2014 ACTFL National Language Teacher of the Year. Egnatz teaches Spanish at Lincoln-Way North High School in Frankfort, Illinois and serves as the 2013 - 2014 president of the Illinois Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ICTFL). Among Egnatz’s many honors are the 2013 Golden Apple Fellow (Chicago, WTTW-111), 2013 Central States Conference Foreign Language Teacher of the Year, and the 2012 Illinois Foreign Language Teacher of the Year.
