    World Language Certification Workshop - Thurs, Aug 7, 2014

    This workshop will NOT be offered at the 2014 NHAWLT Conference. SERESC will offer this day-long workshop so that much can be accomplished.

    If you are a candidate or a mentor of a candidate for World Language Certification, this is the perfect workshop to help you understand the teacher certification competencies and what will and will not “meet” each competency. By the end of the workshop you will have worked on all the competencies and “met” many of them.

    Jan Hennessey will explain to you how to write up your various activities, how to use your lesson plans, transcripts, evaluations, and travel to the target country. She will tell you how to use the Praxis II to “meet” 13 of the competencies.

    Take the frustration and confusion out of the certification process by attending this workshop.
