Building a successful language program requires careful planning, intentional design, and reflective practice. Even if you are constrained by external limitations like a set curriculum, the AP syllabus, or state or district guidelines, you can still reflect critically on your students and yourself and make changes to your teaching practice that will improve student retention and learning outcomes.
This workshop aims to help participants learn how to evaluate a sample data set concerning a program and its demographic relationship with the school or district as a whole. We also will focus on understanding retention rates of students through a program and assessing how successfully students are meeting desired learning outcomes.
Ultimately participants will then draw conclusions from those sample data sets to evaluate, reflect on, and learn how to make informed decisions about methodology, materials, and areas to improve their professional practices as a whole when reviewing their own program.
