ATchats are back for the summer!
What is that you ask? Using Zoom, we will meet to talk out different topics, share solutions and support each other to make communication happen. Bring your questions and connect with other educators.
Below is a schedule of the upcoming discussions open to all. More to come later!
Due to privacy, we will not record these chats. If you miss one, let us know you’re interested in the topic below in the comments.

Starting the Year ATCHAT

Five ways to start the year focused on proficiency.
Tips, resources and lessons that you can do during that first month of teaching.
MIDDLE SCHOOL ATCHAT
June 9th, Thurday at 11am-12pm EST
If you teach middle school, let’s talk about your dream curriculum.
This will be a Q&A discussion about choosing exciting units that are unique for learners. We have something new just for you!
We are creating new units for younger learners! They are shorter (lessons and unit), simplier “I can” statements, and more relevant topics. Once we finish one, we’ll add it to your language page. You can see the ideas on the “Younger Learners Page.” We’d love to have you as part of the process! Share any ideas on those pages.
We also talked about setting benchmarks (Ex NM at the end of year) and year-long goals (recycled “I can”) for a middle school program. You’ll see that on the “Younger Learners Page” too.
May 24th, Tuesday at 11am-12pm EST
Are you a district or teacher leader for your World Language program?
This will be a Q&A discussion about moving your program forward while focusing on proficiency & communication in your curriculum.
We discussed curriculum, assessments, grading and more!
January 10th Q&A on 3 pm & 7 pm EST
It’s the halfway point! Let’s have a live ATchat to discuss what’s on your mind. We’ll have two chats that night, so come to the one that’s best for you.
Topics we can discuss:
+ What’s new/relevant on the site
+ Accountability – What to do and what to not do
+ ANY questions you have
Invite a friend, invite your department… we welcome all to join!
(We’ll send you a reminder email the weekend before.)
