Westside Hosts Organic World Language Training

Posted on:

Westside’s World Languages department hosted a 2-day Organic World Language (OWL) training.  Teachers from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Texas gathered to learn and collaborate on creating an engaging and student-centered classroom that focuses on proficiency.  Major topics included creating proficiency-based assessments, pushing students to their next proficiency level, and using authentic resources to build literacy.  It’s been an informative and fun time for all.
