Dear Members,

As we head down the slippery slope toward the end of the year with all its pomp and circumstance, field days, final projects, etc. we are asking you to consider sharing your knowledge and skills with your peers.

We have made a few changes in the scheduling process and are now offering workshops at 45 minutes, 90 minutes, and 2 hours. If you have ever considered sharing ideas with your peers, now is the time to do it.

There is a special need for presenters who are willing to present in the target language. 

There has also been a call for presenters in the following topics:

-The 5 C’s (choose one) 
-Strategies for more oral communication activities for lower level learners 
-Modifications and accommodations for Special Education students in the world language classroom 
-Getting colleagues on board for cross-curricular collaboration 
-Creative uses of personal devices in the language classroom 
-Increasing cultural theme-based activities in the classroom 
-How to enhance community interaction with your world language classes 
-Using the web effectively for personalized student projects 
-Quick and easy transitional activities to get your students speaking the language more 
-Corporate partnerships in education 
-Creating a focused lesson plan out from teacher and student travel experiences 
-Grant writing and resources for student travel or classroom supplies

We know there are a lot of experts out there, so please join us in building a stronger World Language community in our state!

You will find the proposal form on our website, www.nhawlt.org.

Please submit your proposal by July 1, 2013 if you are interested in presenting at the fall conference at the Radisson in Manchester, NH October 25th and 26th.

Thank you for your consideration, and enjoy the wild ride to the end of the year!
