Event Description

The purpose of the training workshop is to give participating educators an opportunity to share and exchange information and ideas about their programming efforts and to bring awareness to what LEA's and tribal language programs are doing and their program developments. In addition, participants will engage in workshop activities that support language acquisition and development that support meeting standards.

  • Have opportunities to share and learn from each other in networking sessions and small groups
  • Have guided teaching opportunities

  • Become more familiar with a variety of best practices and teaching methods
