CERCLL 2018 Summer Workshop Series

Literacy in the "Wild": Getting Foreign Language Learners out of the Classroom and into the World

June 4 - 8th

By developing literacy in a foreign language and culture, learners can ideally gain the ability to encounter not only new words but also new physical, virtual, and imagined worlds (Kern, 2000). But sometimes the four walls of the classroom feel confining and it can be difficult to reconcile pedagogical imperatives to bring in authentic texts with the active involvement of experiential learning.

This one-week workshop series for language educators explores strategies for connecting foreign language literacy with the “wild”(Thorne, 2010), that is with real-world contexts of use. Participants may register for individual workshops by David Malinowski, Chantelle Warner and Lawrence Williams, or they may register for the whole week. K-12 teachers will receive Continuing Education (6 hours per day).


June 4 - 5th: David Malinowski, Yale University

Bridging Classroom and Community with Linguistic and Literary Landscapes

June 6 - 7th: Chantelle Warner, University of Arizona

Foreign Languages and Literacies at the Museum

June 8th: Lawrence Williams, University of North Texas

Digital Tools and Digital Literacies for Exploring Virtual Worlds


The "Literacy in the Wild" workshops are just $15 per day until April 30th, and $20 per day thereafter. There are travel scholarships available for individuals traveling more than 60 miles to get to Tucson for these events.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
