Pre-Conference Workshops

Monday, July 15, at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Lunch
1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Curriculum with a Coach | Gary DiBianca
This workshop will provide strategies for how to articulate units. More importantly, there will be time to develop your own ideas and brainstorm with a coach by your side.
1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. How to Share What Works | Justin Slocum Bailey
Learn how to build trust and create real change when you share acquisition-driven practices with other teachers!
1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. ADI-Driven, Low-Prep, High-Engagement Strategies for Endless Enthusiasm! | Haiyun Lu
Teacher burnout is real! From the everyday stresses of the classroom, to the constant planning, to the exhaustion of always playing catch-up, the school year takes a toll on us. It doesn't have to anymore! This workshop will teach you strategies that alleviate that stress while providing students with ADI-rich instruction. These strategies require little planning and result in high engagement and even enthusiasm! Shake off the feeling of burnout for good!
1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Making It Work For You: Leveraging CI Strategies in Your ESL Classroom | Alexis Gross
Have you been adapting CI strategies created for World Languages to your ESL classroom all on your own? In this workshop, harness the power of fellow experts to help you apply language acquisition strategies in your ESL or content class to take all students' learning to the next level! Collaborate with fellow ESL teachers to adapt techniques from the World Languages classroom to your own special circumstance.
1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Get Two for the Price of One: Language and Content | Janice Kittok
Are you frustrated by students’ lack of world knowledge? Combine the power of Comprehensible Input with Content-Based Instruction to teach the geography, history, current events, and biographies from the target culture. See how easy it is to create lessons for Levels 1 - AP using templates and tips from modeled lessons. When students learn their new language and global studies content at the same time, they get two for the price of one!
9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Coaching for Colleagues | Michelle Kindt and Amy Wopat
This workshop is being held all day, unlike the other workshops, and is for level 3+ attendees (those who are very experienced and knowledgeable in ADI)
Coaching is where practitioners of ADI discover their own strengths. Coaching offers a time and place for teachers at every level of their journey toward ADI to get questions answered in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way and to walk away empowered to carry-on and implement ADI in their own classrooms. The feedback in these coaching sessions is motivational.

Daily Schedule
