Four Steps to Encourage Transformative Learning in L2 (1-2)
Transformative learning occurs when individuals critically examine their assumptions and the resulting beliefs and points of view. L2 instruction is particularly suited for such introspection as learners analyze and evaluate how other cultures handle social aspects that they might have never questioned in their own culture. This presentation provides steps to provide students with dissonant information so that they might want to take the intellectual and emotional risks to construct lasting alternative meanings and gain more autonomy in their lives.

Authenticity: How to Use This Legitimate Resource in the Language Classroom (2-14)

But how do we choose authentic materials for the different student proficiency levels? What can we use? What can we do with them? This session will provide ideas on how to create activities using these materials with no translation at all language levels to subvert assumptions and engage students in the learning process.

Comprehensible Input Versus Standardized Testing: What Can Novices Achieve? (5-9)
Language teachers and administrators may resist implementing Comprehensible Input approaches, including Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS), fearing that students’ performance on standardized assessments will lag behind learners in more traditional classrooms. This presentation reports results from practitioner research that compared CI and traditional instruction among U.S. middle schoolers using quantitative and qualitative methods. Whereas CI learners matched the county average on ACTFL’s AAPPL listening and speaking portions, they reported far greater satisfaction and confidence with TPRS.

Creating LGBT+ Affirming Classes with Language and Content: No One Walks Alone (8-5)
Students are more aware and more conscious of using appropriate language around issues that affect the LGBT+ community. As youths openly identify as LGBT+ earlier, appropriate vocabulary for students to describe themselves and others is essential to developing meaningful language proficiency. Additionally, research demonstrates that positive school climates, including the integration of LGBT+ voices in curricula, can moderate the negative effects of anti-LGBT+ bias. Language classrooms which provide appropriate LGBT+ affirming language benefit students' learning for proficiency and school experiences.
