ELL Learning Series:
Giving an active role to language students
Gimme a break! Activities designed to get students working harder than you do.You work so hard every day to provide great input and stay in the target language, but sometimes you just need a break! In this session, you will learn several activities designed to improve classroom management and make students work harder than you do! Leave this session with virtual or in-person ideas you can use in the next class. Some examples will be in Spanish, but activities could be adjusted to fit any language course.
