Increasing Students’ Communication through Partner Gap Activities
Date: November 6, 2013
Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm EST

In this webinar, participants will learn how to introduce and incorporate information gap activities into all types of content and curriculum to increase the amount and level of communication in their language. Traditional dialogue activities require little cognitive skill, whereas gap activities encourage students to process a request, look for information, then respond in the target language. Gap activities can support students with even limited target language proficiency in sustaining a true conversation.
