As we wait for the 2022 Seminar to begin, last summer’s resources remain available on our website for you to enjoy.
“The Socially Just World Language Classroom: Social-Emotional Learning and Framework-Aligned Practices” was held virtually from July 16th-21st, 2021. Our professional learning emphasizing self-care in service of social justice remains available for you to explore. We focused on learning recovery and on learning opportunities that empower teachers and students to thrive in all learning settings – online, hybrid, and in person.
