Session 1: Plenary Session By TriState TCI

From Zero to Literacy Through interaction, Personalization, and Collaborative Writing

This session will serve as an introduction to Teaching with Comprehensible Input (TCI). The demo will be in Mandarin, modeling comprehension-focused interaction around PictureTalk and personalized questions and answers (PQA). It will culminate with Write and Discuss/Live Typing, accompanied by reflection and time to debrief. TriState TCI connects teachers from around the PA-NJ-DE area (and beyond!) in sharing and exploring strategies to teach World Languages with Comprehensible Input.

Session 2 - Language Specific Sessions

There will be language specific sessions in Mandarin Chinese, French, and Spanish. During this time, participants will be able to ask follow-up questions and practice the techniques modeled in the plenary session. Facilitators will model the Write and Discuss technique in the group’s target language and build on what was learned in the plenary session. Participants will then break into small groups to practice and develop their own activities in the target language.
