Yes We Can! An Introduction to the 2017 NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements

The Workshop

With the launch of the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements, world language educators now have a tool that helps create a learner-centered classroom in which both teachers and students reflect on the learning process. In shifting the focus to the learners, teachers engender metacognition among their students and encourage them to share responsibility for their learning. The Can-Do Statements provide a clear guide for designing curriculum and units of instruction, for creating classroom assessments of performance, and for teaching daily lessons. These self-assessment checklists are used by learners to assess what they “can do” with language in the interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational modes of communication. Through multiple opportunities of formative and summative assessment, learners collect the evidence that points toward a specific proficiency level. They also see what lies ahead on their language learning journey.

In this full-day workshop, we shall look at various Can-Do Statements at the Novice and Intermediate proficiency levels. From there, we will learn to transform your existing curricular goals into kid-friendly language that supports proficiency-based language teaching. Next, we’ll look at ways in which you are able to help students document their growth via portfolios. Finally, we shall explore and design activities that will support your program’s personalized Can-Do Statements for elementary and middle school-aged learners.
