Concurrent Sessions 2-Add a Content-Area Course to Your Language Trip
Adding a content-area course to your language trip can increase enrollment and enrich student learning. The presenters developed a trip to Germany in which students also earn credit in environmental science. Discussion will include how to create an interdisciplinary course within a language trip that complements both culture and course content.    The trip is led by the language teacher, while the course is taught concurrently by a science teacher. Due to its interdisciplinary nature and the opportunity to earn course credit, the trip attracts more students. Presenters will show participants how to: select a relevant course, choose sites in the target country to optimize immersive learning on site, prepare material for on-the-road instruction, and successfully advertise the trip to students.     Outcomes:  1. Participants can design a trip to the target country that allows students to earn credit in a discipline other than the language.   2. Participants can design a trip itinerary that lends itself to interdisciplinary collaboration with a content-area course.   3. Participants can identify a potential interdisciplinary partner at their institution.   4. Participants can craft a pitch to recruit students for an interdisciplinary trip.

Concurrent Session 2- Planning, Pacing, and Posting Homework for Woodward Academy Upper School Teachers
Want to get some preplanning our of the way? Want to have all your homework posted online before the school year starts? Come make your calendar that will not only give you a planner for the entire semester, it will also allow you to post all your homework to PowerSchool Learning in about 5 min. You can also learn how to upload your plans into Google Calendar if you prefer a digital version. Each participant should bring a laptop or computer with a full version of Microsoft Excel. We will allow you time to actually use the excel calendar and enter your specific information. We will walk you through the process of posting homework and setting up homework calendars for your classes, etc.  Come see why teachers are saying that this spreadsheet "has honestly been a lifesaver!"
