Monday, Aug 2

AM Sessions.  9:30a-11:00a PT/12:30p-2:00p ET

Translanguaging: Exploring Language Stories

In this workshop, participants will engage in an exploration of holistic multilingual identity, a key component of working in an Internationals Network school community, as told through the perspectives of various writers. Through collaborative discussion and reflection, participants build their schema around how to support students in balancing new language and culture while maintaining connections to home language and culture.

Intended Audience: This session is especially designed for educators new to the Internationals Network, but returning teachers are welcome and encouraged to come as well.

PM Sessions.  1:00p-2:30p PT/4:00p-5:30p ET

Core Principles of the Internationals Approach

What are the Internationals Network Core Principles and how do they appear in school communities? This workshop takes participants through a series of virtual stations, each of which is devoted to one of the five core principles of the Internationals approach. Through the course of these five stations, participants watch videos, review resources, and look at curriculum to learn how each core principle is embodied in practice. This session serves as a foundational experience in acclimating to the Internationals approach.

Intended Audience: This session is especially designed for educators new to the Internationals Network, but returning teachers are welcome and encouraged to come as well.

Language and Content Integration, Part 1

This two-part workshop supports all teachers in strengthening their capacity as language teachers, regardless of the content they teach. This focus enables students to develop their language skills in all content areas while deepening their knowledge of content. Over the course of these two sessions, participants will reflect on their own experience, review language functions, rehearse and discuss how to identify language demands in content classes, explore multiple strategies for supporting language development, and analyze how to apply all of these ideas to project-based units. Through discussion, stations, and hands-on experiences, participants will walk away with ideas and concrete, immediately replicable strategies for addressing and supporting language development in any content class.

Intended Audience: This session is recommended for all educators, whether new or returning.
