“BEYOND THE BASICS SERIES: “Teaching Intermediate Speakers” with Blaine Ray” – Feb 23-24, 2021

February 23 @ 4:00 pm - February 24 @ 7:30 pm $149

This is an online workshop due to the CoVid-19 virus.

6 hours of training, 3 hours a day for 2 days. 4 pm to 7:15 pm Pacific Time.

This is a follow-up workshop ideal for someone who has already been to a beginner workshop in 2019 or 2020. It will discuss some of the skills and strategies to engage students who are processing language quickly and need more engaging ideas to continue their progress toward intermediate low and mid oral proficiency.

As students process basic verbs faster, lesson planning becomes more interesting. This is an exciting time and can happen quite early in the process, as early as 20-30 hours for a language like Spanish. The workshop will focus on creatively planning lessons for optimal student engagement. It will include a demo of Blaine teaching his high achieving students. This training is appropriate for ideas for how to teach advanced levels as well. Blaine will share his strategies for engagement and will answer the following questions:
* How can I enhance engagement by quantifying and specifying details?
* How does Describe the Situation impact my pacing?
* What are my linguistic goals with advanced students?
* How can I get students to defend and expand on their opinions and ideas?

All participants will receive a certificate of completion with the number of hours completed (3 hours per day). 

Presenter: Blaine Ray
