This one-day workshop focuses on how to approach grammar from a functional, proficiency-oriented perspective. After exploring a framework for addressing grammar functionally, participants will be guided through hands-on activities to evaluate their existing materials, rethink the treatment of grammar inside individual courses and across the curriculum, and design activities intended to help student acquire grammatical structures at various levels of proficiency. As an official ACTFL workshop, it will address how ACTFL guidelines and assessment concepts can be applied in a daily classroom setting.
Presenter: Dr. Peyman Nojoumian (Associate Professor of Persian, University of Southern California)
