In the month of July, we are re-running some of our favorite episodes from the first year of the podcast just in case you started listening recently or you always meant to go back and re-listen to a few of your favorites! We’ll be back with new episodes in August.
In episode 23, Stacey asks Paul Sandrock, Director of Education at ACTFL, about performance assessment. Why should teachers use performance assessment, how does it work, and what resources does ACTFL have to help?
We welcome feedback, resources, and diverse perspectives on this topic! To contribute to the conversation started here, leave us a voicemail or send a text message to (629)888-3398. Or you can follow us on Twitter @weteachlang or use this contact form to send us an email.
You can find Paul Sandrock on Twitter @psandrock.
