Join us for our third event in the 2023-2024 Professional Learning Series with CT COLT Teachers of the Year! Our third workshop - Inquiry - Based Instruction and Authentic Resources - will be presented by Yensen Sierra Lambert on Thursday, November 9 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.  Yensen was born in Dominican Republic and she moved to the US as a child. She is a chair of World Languages Department at Greens Farms Academy in Westport, CT. 

The workshop will be followed by an opportunity to connect, network, and chat with other language teachers. Session will be recorded and available afterwards on our website under members only content. 

Session abstract:

As educators, we are very familiar with the concept of an essential question as the driving force of a thematic unit, but what happens when students come up with their own essential questions? Including relevant and interesting authentic resources in our curriculum can spark curiosity and motivation for our students to conduct their own investigations of the target language. This webinar will take a deep dive into the world of student-driven essential questions in the language classroom and the types of authentic resources that motivate them.

Registration for this workshop is free for CT COLT members. If you are not already a member, you can join through the registration process or by clicking here
