The Massachusetts DESE has announced that the second round of Curriculum Alignment Labs for the World Languages Framework Implementation are available for registration. In response, to feedback, the DESE has decided to slow down the pace of the Alignment Labs. This second round of labs will take place during the final 2 weeks of May, instead of the final week of the originally scheduled first week of April. This will provide more time to complete the most recent Online Learning Modules (4-6) now available on the World Languages Implementation webpage as well as to begin to collaboratively align a unit or units in your department using the Curriculum Alighnment Guide (also available on the Implementation webpage.
The Curriculum Alighnment Labs are 90 minutes. Be sure to complete Modules 4-5 prior to atttending. See the links below for dates, times, and registration details.
