Language with the Five Senses

and experience the language with all of the senses to build language pathways in the brain.


This workshop includes:

- An overview and history of the method/how it was created.
- A detailed explanation of the process, with practical activities for each step
- Workshop includes lesson plans and activities that go through an entire lesson for all of the steps
- Adaptations for use of technology in the classroom - Connections to culture and how to bring authentic situations into the classroom
- Integration of comprehensible input and chunking into your lessons
- Project based assessment showing practical application of the language.
- An overview of different resources available.

help us understand why we think the way we do and explore culture shapes our thinking as we relate to
others in the world.

This workshop includes:
