Standards-Based Design in the World Language Classroom
Dear Michael,

Will you be attending the ACTFL Annual Conventionin Nashville next week? If so, be sure to stop by the Fuel Education booth (booth #906) to learn more about our digital world languages curriculum for students in grades K-12.
We’ll also be leading a session on Sunday, November 19th at 10:00 am CT: “How to Implement a Standards-Based Instructional Model“. Standards-based education is often viewed as a negative to language learning, but when implemented correctly can create a more dynamic, focused learning experience. Learn about the core structure of standards-based education and study specific scenarios of how to use it in the classroom.
Can’t make it to ACTFL but want to learn more about our courses? Sign up for a demo today!
