Organize Your Language Teacher Life
Organize Your Language Teacher Life is a course combining two of my favorite things, language teaching and organizing! If you’re a language teacher with big ideas, but feel like the everyday prep/grading makes it difficult to implement them, or struggle with remembering where exactly you saved/saw that cool video for class, this course may be for you. It focuses on developing systems to manage all the areas of your language teacher life, from lesson prep, to grading, to resource management.
We Can learn Arabic
We Can Learn Arabic is an open access website developed by the Arabic teaching team at the University of New Mexico. It consists of nine thematic units. Each unit has 2-4 targeted Can-Do Statements (e.g. I can meet a new person) with accompanying videos or written texts that show Arabic speakers doing these activities. We use it in our first and second year Arabic classes at the University of New Mexico.
