This interactive session discusses the development of a professional development program in which student teachers collaboratively reflect and design authentic language assessments (ALA). ALAs promote ELLs’ academic language by connecting classroom activities with engaging real-world activities essential for success in English classroom. Participants will engage in reviewing our newly-developed ALAs.
In this session, the presenters will discuss and demonstrate how problem-based learning, an innovative learner-centered pedagogical approach, can be used to maximize authentic learning opportunities for undergraduate students to develop disciplinary knowledge (e.g., mathematical knowledge) and competencies.
