How can we bring a focus on developing proficiency to each unit and lesson we teach? Unpack the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements to understand the language functions that we need to develop continuously throughout our language programs starting from the very beginning. Use the lens of the World-Readiness Standards to create a language- and culture-rich environment. Experience the process of using language functions to identify unit goals and daily lesson objectives. Prepare to energize your learners!
