World Language Summit
North Cobb Christian School is excited to host the 2nd Annual World Language Educators Summit 2022 for ALL world language teachers, far and wide!
NEW DATE FOR 2022
SATURDAY | APRIL 23, 2022
8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
$10 includes breakfast AND lunch
This year's theme is INNOVATION. Come prepared to learn from fellow language teachers as they present their best lessons, projects, assessments, tips and tools that help their students soar! Sign up for workshops and think-tanks that will inspire your students and refresh your lesson repertoire.
Hosted by the North Cobb Christian School World Language Department, this one-day interactive summit is designed to give you practical, apply-right-now best practices. What's your most impactful teaching idea or project? What's your back-burner idea that needs rekindling? How do we make language studies relevant to today's teens? Let's collaborate to address these issues and many more!
The registration for this event is $10 per teacher, which includes a delicious breakfast and lunch!
ACTIVITIES | Rotate between sessions aimed at sharing fresh teaching methods, project ideas and favorite lessons.
GOAL | Leave with renewed inspiration and armloads of practical, innovative ideas that you can implement right away to reach language students on all levels in our current school environments.
COST | $10, which covers the cost of breakfast and lunch.
ENTICEMENT | Hosted by the language teachers at North Cobb Christian School, we invite you to come be our guests as we build a collaborative community of educators!
