Diversity Day/MOPI Training

NEW EVENT! – Modified Oral Proficiency Interview (MOPI) Training

Looking to deepen your knowledge of proficiency levels and more accurately identify your students’ level of proficiency? Come to MaFLA’s Modified Oral Proficiency Interview Training on June 7&8 in Melrose. Two strands, Spanish and Mixed Languages, will be led by ACTFL certified trainers Adrian Massei (Spanish) and Karl Otto (Mixed Languages). Each strand will introduce basic elements of the Oral Proficiency Interview, extending your knowledge of the sub levels of proficiency. All attendees will watch several interviews and debrief on questioning strategies and topic development. Attendees who select the “interviewer” tier will have the opportunity to interview a Novice or Intermediate language learner as part of the training. The MOPI prides itself on its coaching format and therefore the strand sizes are very small.  Want to know more?  Click HERE.

Diversity Day

Diversity Day is our annual professional development event focused on diverse cultures, diverse methods, and a chance for you to diversify your teaching!  This event will be held this year at Melrose High School on June 8, 2019. Diversity Day will feature full-day strands in French and Spanish as well as a NEW half-day strand in Portuguese.  Full information on the 2019 Diversity Day event is available HERE.

MaFLA regrets that due to circumstances beyond our control, Diversity Day has been cancelled for this year.  It will be back and in its usual time slot in May in 2020.
