Strand C – PBLL – Project-Based Language Learning: A Pathway to Social Justice


This strand will support teachers in utilizing technology tools, authentic content resources, and pedagogical skills needed to guide students in a Project-Based Language-Learning (PBLL) environment. PBLL engages students in interdisciplinary inquiry on global and social justice themes as they work on their social emotional awareness in collaborative teams, developing critical and creative thinking skills (DOK), gaining literacy skills, exercising leadership and acquiring global competencies. Participants will create a complete PBLL-aligned unit, which addresses the California World Language Content Standards and Framework, the ACTFL World Readiness Standards, and issues of equity, social justice and sustainability. This strand is appropriate for teachers of all languages and cultures, including teachers of Multiple Language Learners.
