About the event

The purpose of this four-part series is to continue highlighting the valuable connections between language skills and everyday areas of life and work. The framework of this series positions advocacy as an act of communication and storytelling by tying each topic to a mode of communication as defined by the Performance Descriptors. Attendees will hear personal and professional stories from special guest speakers with language experience and an understanding of how different types of communication impact audiences. Attendees will then hear from JNCL-NCLIS leaders about how we see this type of communication value in our advocacy and have the opportunity to participate in a professional development activity and debrief to build experience and confidence in three-modes driven language instruction that serves as a great language advocacy tool. Professional development attendance certificate for 2 hours included.
