DLS had great representation at the last ACTFL convention. Below are the details on what presentations we led. We are super proud to be a part of this every year and cannot wait to give some great presentations at the next convention later this year!

The presenters will discuss the challenges that instructors face in this setting and offer some best practices for this type of training.

Using Cultural Critical Incidents to Enhance Language Instruction
Integrating cultural critical incidents into language activities provides a foundation for engaging and relevant instruction. A curriculum development project with the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) Language Program will demon- strate how critical incidents elicited from the learner population are used to create activities.
