We know what appeals more to students, yet we feed them grammar, with an occasional treat from “authentic culture.” What if we used the treat as entry into the language? In this workshop, participants will practice developing lessons around authentic input, be it reading, listening, or viewing. Through a hierarchy of tasks, students learn to discover and use the language in meaningful contexts. Then, it is no longer YouTube OR grammar, but YouTube WITH grammar, all wrapped up in authenticity and relevance!
