Goal two is to, while grounding ourselves in the Comprehension Hypothesis, change the content we are teaching, which in some very fundamental ways also requires changing ourselves.
It does not mean that our sheltered subject matter has to be taught in English instead of the TL. It doesn’t mean that students should be producing output instead of receiving input. It doesn’t mean that meaningful content should be broken down to analyze its grammatical components.
This is where we bridge both.
We start at the bottom and build to the top.
Participants and presenters are encouraged to get together in person in their own cities to watch sessions or to collaborate at the end of the day. Be the point person in your city and gather other attendees.
