Looking at Your Students’ Work to
Evaluate Progress Toward Learning Targets
How do language teacher know how their students are meeting their learning targets? Let’s take a look at students’ work to determine how they demonstrate their language abilities and where they are in their journey of developing proficiency. We’ll use the new ACTFL “Can Do” statements, various language rubrics, and a protocol for looking students’ work to facilitate teacher discussion. This collegial discussion provides insight into how students demonstrate language proficiency and how teachers can determine what are the important indicators of proficiency benchmarks. Teachers should bring samples of their students work to the workshop, i.e. writing samples, digital recordings, and video for use in small group discussion.
