The Office of Language Acquisition invites all world language leaders and educators to engage with the Department’s training series for the implementation of the 2021 World Languages Curriculum Framework. The implementation series will begin on March 1st, 2022 and will extend through January 2023. It will consist of a sequence of 20-30 minute asynchronous framework training modules and five synchronous webinars in which participants will collaborate to align their district’s curriculum to the new 2021 World Languages Curriculum Framework. Although the implementation series will be accessible to all individual world language educators, it is optimized to be facilitated by district-based world language leaders during common departmental plan periods, TBT meetings, and/or district PD sessions.
All district and building leaders who oversee professional development as well as world language directors, supervisors, coordinators and teachers are invited to attend a 1-hour orientation webinar introducing the implementation series on Thursday, February 17th at 3:30. Registration is available here. All registrants will receive a Zoom link upon registration. Registrants will also receive a link to the recording of the webinar and all webinar materials after the event. Please contact Andy McDonie at firstname.lastname@example.org and keep checking for more forthcoming information on DESE’s World Languages webpage.
