It’s 8:30pm on Saturday night, the boys are asleep (for now, anyway), and I am on the computer putting finishing touches on my presentation for ACTFL. That’s right…I am actually going to a conference, and I am hoping that I will be able to meet many of you in person!! When Cindy Hitz came up to Alaska in September for our conference, all of my friends thought that it was so hilarious that I was going to the airport to pick up a “friend” that I had never met and bring her to my house for the night and then drive her around the next day. They were sure that she was going to be a serial killer (her cookies are quite deadly, I must admit!). I hope to meet many of my online friends in person so that we can be real friends 🙂
So, how can we find each other? Well, like I said, I will be presenting on Saturday at 11:15am along with every other TPRS/CI teacher (coincidence….? hmm…), so you can find me in room W204A from 11:15am-12:15pm. I will be presenting on the BEST way to use authentic resources for novice learners…comprehensible input! The infograph you see here is a sneak preview of the presentation. I’ll work through five resources with eleven different activities. If, however, you can’t make it to my presentation because you want to attend Cindy’s on short films (can someone please record it?!) or one of the other CI/TPRS presentations happening in that exact.same.hour…you can find me at the TPRS Publishing vendor booth whenever I’m not attending sessions, but definitely on Friday from 10:00-12:00 and Saturday from 2:00-4:00.
