Teacher Use of Target Language

In this workshop you will use data from your own lesson to evaluate and reflect on your use of spoken language in the classroom. 
Teacher use of the Target Language  (TL) is one important strategy to increase students use of the TL, yet one that many teachers can find challenging to implement consistently and for all levels of learners, particularly beginner learners.

Prior to this workshop, participants will be required to obtain a small amount of unanalysed data from a language lesson in the form of a 5-10 minute recording which will only be used by the participant, therefore you'll need to be currently employed in a language teaching position.

You will be guided through a self-evaluation and reflection process and there will be an opportunity for participants to share and discuss as much or as little from their findings as they feel comfortable with. Further information will be given from the Facilitator after teachers have registered, hence it is important that teachers have registered more than one day prior to the workshop.

This workshop will be relevant for teachers of all languages, particularly for teachers of learners in Levels 1-4 of the New Zealand Curriculum. Teachers of all language proficiency levels are welcome. This workshop is also relevant for teachers new to teaching languages, as well as a valuable refresher for more experienced teachers who have completed Curriculum Support programmes in the past.
