It was such a treat to present this 3-hour workshop with my dear colleague J.J. Kelleher, whom I've had the pleasure of teaching with for nearly 20 years. She was a very good sport to agree to this, and spend time over summer vacation planning it! I also think it's valuable for participants to hear two different perspectives on the how, what and why of our practices.
Our entire slideshow can be found here and the accompanying handouts here. Natalia DeLaat's handy description of TALK, including feedback cards for students, is here. I wrote a blog post about how I do interpersonal assessments with TALK here. Many ideas for formative assessment, compiled by Wellesley High School German teacher Devon Ellis during our time at Proficiency Academy, can be found in this handout.
Participants' answers to questions can be found here:
Do you assess interpersonal speaking?
What would you like to change?
