The first round of World Language Curriculum Alignment Labs, part of the World Languages Framework Implementation Series, begin the week of March 28th. Labs are online and 90-minutes in length; they are organized into groups of elementary, classical, and secondary modern world language educators. Multiple sessions, before and after school hours, are available. We recommend that those who participate in this first round of labs (Curriculum Lab 1) complete the World Languages Implementation Modules 1-3 (available on the World Languages Implementation webpage) prior to attending the lab. The Department invites all world language educators and school/district curriculum leaders who will be part of the school or district’s World Languages Curriculum Alignment Team to register for a Curriculum Alignment Lab and to bring a unit from their current curriculum that they wish to align to the new standards. All implementation information, including registration links for the labs and access to the free, online Modules 1-3 are available on the World Languages Framework Implementation webpage. Curriculum Alignment Labs 2-5 will be held during the final weeks of April, May and October of 2022 and January 2023, respectively – exact times TBD. Each lab will be 90 minutes, and PDPs are available at the end of the series. Contact Andy McDonie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
