• Institute Type: 1-week online—synchronous
  • Target Audience: Middle school to postsecondary world language teachers and teacher educators. The institute is not intended for ESL or dual language immersion teachers.

This institute has been specifically designed for world language teachers who want to familiarize themselves with and implement Content-Based Instruction (CBI) in the second language classroom.

Participants will also learn how to expand their own existing curricula by familiarizing themselves with a framework for Integrating Content, Language, and Literacy (Cammarata, 2016) and utilizing the Content-Based Language Teaching with Technology (CoBaLTT) online resources.
