The FLLITE Approach: Lesson Design, Assessment, and Publication

Glickman Conference Center, The University of Texas at Austin
Joanna Luks (Cornell University)
Chantelle Warner (University of Arizona)
Carl Blyth (University of Texas, COERLL)

Participants will use pedagogical principles and strategies from the Foreign Languages and the Literary in the Everyday (FLLITE) project to create original lessons, discover new open educational materials featuring playful language use, incorporate formative and summative assessment into FLLITE lessons, and prepare and peer-review materials for possible publication.

About the FLLITE project

FLLITE is a cross-disciplinary approach that aims to create an educational community of language teachers who will generate crowdsourced literacy lessons based on culturally authentic texts (words, images, videos) for the L2 classroom. The lessons will refine and extend the pedagogical principles of “the literary in the everyday”, in which “the literary” refers to the range of playful, metaphorical, and non-conventional ways of making meaning. Teachers of all languages are welcome!

Please note: CPE Credits are available for those who attend the whole workshop.
