CATESOL Service-Learning Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Service-learning enhances CATESOL teachers’ understanding of ELLs, language learning theories and practices, and local communities. This CATESOL service-learning workshop provides lesson plans, activities, materials, and assessment tools for community-based civic engagement learning activities for ESL and EFL learners. The presenter will provide participants as much "hands-on" experience as possible. Participants will be guided to work in groups and identify community partners in their area to conceptualize a plan for how they might implement or incorporate service-learning at their school or in their program. Participants will be encouraged to draft a proposal for their administration and list what they think would be the benefits and logistical considerations. Potential discussion points such as legalities and insurance waivers may be prioritized.
