Description

Practical Assessment Tools for College Japanese collects 21 peer-reviewed assessment modules that were developed by teachers of Japanese who participated in the Assessments for Japanese Language Instruction Summer Institute at University of Hawai`i at Mānoa in summer 2012. Each module presents a practical assessment idea that can be adopted or adapted for the reader’s own formative or summative assessment of their Japanese language learners. For ease of use, each module is organized in approximately the same way including background information, aims, levels, assessment times, resources, procedures, caveats and options, references, and other appended information.

Workshop
PEARLL Summer Institute: Effective Lesson Planning

When schools develop new curricula, there are often gaps that exist between what is written and what teachers need to implement the new curricula. Participants will learn how to deconstruct unit can-do statements into chunks for daily lessons. They will review several examples and will develop a sequence of activities that move students from input to output incorporating frequent checks for learning designed to provide feedback for the learner and teacher. Participants will have time to develop several lesson plans and will receive feedback at each stage of the development process. Access to model lesson plans, activity banks, and more will be provided.

Symposium
LiLaC- Literatures, Languages and Cultures in the 21st Century

CERCLL will be leading a new initiative on campus in this series of events and professional learning communities for the University of Arizona’s faculty, administrators and graduate students in language, literature and culture departments to explore today’s best practices and models for foreign language, literature and culture departments. We are hosting the launch event on Friday, September 27, 2019 (2:00-5:00 pm) on campus. It will feature world-renowned speakers who have a record of innovative program development. In a roundtable discussion, the invited speakers will each share transdisciplinary initiatives they have lead on their home campuses. This will be followed by breakout sessions in which participants can focus on themes of specific significance to them. Through these conversations, we will identify future directions to explore as a campus. The event will conclude with a reception. Featured speakers: Charlotte Melin (Professor of German University of Minnesota-Twin Cities) Gillian Lord (Professor and Chair of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, University of Florida) Domna Stanton (Distinguished Professor of French, CUNY; former President of the MLA) The event is for University of Arizona faculty and graduate students, with a focus in world language study.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
