For LOTE Educators

7 Steps to a Language-Rich, Interactive Foreign Language Classroom is a collection of research-based strategies designed to increase students’ comprehensible input and provide low-stress opportunities for language output and interaction. 7 Steps creates a foundation from which to build an energizing classroom environment where students are motivated to participate and gain access points to numerous target languages comprehensively scaffolded for various language levels. Participants will learn:

  • Experience-based classroom strategies (via simulations) in multiple foreign languages
  • Innovative ways to use visuals and vocabulary as tools for building comprehension
  • Easy-to-implement structures for speaking, reading, and writing in the target language
  • Research-based, practical techniques from the new book, 7 Steps to a Language-Rich, Interactive Foreign Language Classroom: Strategies for Teachers of Languages Other Than English (LOTE)
