    Summer 2019 Proficiency Institute

    Sponsored by CTCOLT and RIFLA

    at Stonington High School, Stonington CT

    June 26-27, 2019

    CT COLT and RIFLA are thrilled to announce the return of Greg Duncan who will work language educators on their journey to teaching for proficiency. After serving as a high school teacher of Spanish, a high school administrator and then as Coordinator of Foreign Languages and International Education for the Georgia Department of Education, Greg launched a career in 1993 as an independent consultant. His work includes professional development of teachers and administrators, curriculum and assessment design, program development, and evaluation. He has authored and collaborated in the authorship of numerous publications in the field of foreign language education.

    The 2019 Summer Proficiency Institute will be an opportunity for teams of teachers from an individual district, or individual teachers from separate districts, to spend two days working on connecting units to proficiency targets. Greg will help participants apply learning about proficiency to curriculum and instruction. Participants will learn how to use backward design to plan units for a specific target by leading with essential questions and referencing exemplars to enhance or build their own units. Greg will illustrate how to design an arc of units for years 1 and 2, give guidance to groups as they build a unit, and provide feedback to teams or individuals as they design an action plan to continue their work over the upcoming school year. This institute will be a wonderful opportunity to work together with both colleagues and experts to apply learning about proficiency to design instructional units.
