In the immediate wake of this crisis, many full-time, self-employed Comprehension-Based presenters in our community have seen in-person workshops and in-services canceled for the next 10 weeks.  These presenters have seen 50-100% of their incomes disappear in a matter of days.    The goal of this page is to support these teachers / presenters who are most affected.   We are creating a schedule of webinars to off-set this lost income as much as possible.  Webinars are $8 per hour.  (Further explanation moved to the bottom of the page).     This is a list of all courses.  You can add courses you still would like to take and accumulate hours for watching webinars and for work that you have done in cooperative lesson planning sessions or on your own.  If you have not yet participated in any webinars, you can sign up for the entire course for one $150 donation 
(Total of all webinars is over $300.00)

This is our CI SOS creatively co-created plan.  (Pronounced “See Sauce”)

  1.  We are accepting donations beginning immediately;
  2. We have made our platform available to these presenters to offer in-services remotely;
  3. Presenters are offering live webinars here.  100% of the proceeds from these webinars goes to presenters;
  4. Vendors have donated downloadable “packages”.  (Please honor copyrights by not posting resources on-line).  100% of these proceeds from these sales go to these presenters.
  5. Additional presenters who do not rely on training as their sole source of income have generously offered to present webinars and to donate a portion of or all of the collected registration fees.  Proceeds from these webinars will be distributed among those presenters whose income has been affected by COVID-19.
  6. Fluency Fast on-line language classes will be offered live through Zoom, supporting non-salaried teachers who have seen live classes canceled and income abruptly stop;
  7. Information will be shared about these resources by several partners including Voces Digital, Tina Hargaden and CI Liftoff
  8. Several free resources are available for students doing remote learning.  A list of those resources can be found here and have also been posted on two Facebook pages, IFLT / NTPRS / CI Teaching and CI for French Teachers.  Fluency Matters, Martina Bex and the Comprehensible Classroom, Voces Digital, Alice Ayel and Sr Wooly, as well as many others listed on those Facebook pages, are all offering online resources for students during this period of remote learning. TPRS Books has temporarily granted permission for teachers to share resources on internal school platforms (not public).  At the end of this school year, all materials should be removed.  Contact them for clarification.  Sr Wooly has offered free Pro Subscription access for a limited time.

Full Disclosure: Fluency Fast is a for-profit business run by Karen Rowan, the admin of the IFLT / NTPRS / CI Teaching page that provides online and live language classes and school district in-service teacher training.  While all profits from this collaborative emergency project will be funneled to the fund for CI presenters and teachers (independent contractors) this income is taxable.  Using our online existing platforms and accounting infrastructure,  we will follow all tax laws.  For your own tax purposes as a customer, this is an educational expense on your own taxes, not a tax-exempt donation.   Our accounting will be transparent and we will subtract only external credit card processing fees (those charged by Visa, Mastercard, Paypal etc.).  We expect webinars to continue through May.
