CALLI - A CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

CLTA is looking for members who are interested in developing their leadership capacity and teaching practice and who are committed to furthering the mission of the California Language Teachers’ Association. To that end, the California Language Leadership Initiative (CALLI) is being offered at the 2018 CLTA Conference in Ontario. This intensive leadership institute will take place over a three day period (Thursday, March 8 – Saturday morning, March 10) during the conference.

CALLI will follow ACTFL’s LILL model (http://languageleadership.org/) and is designed to empower educators to become agents for change throughout California’s language classrooms and programs. This invitation-only institute will foster a growth mindset focused on research-based teaching and purposeful nurturing of leadership skills.

Applicants should have some demonstrated leadership ability, show potential for growth and impact, and demonstrate a long-term commitment to the California Language Teachers’ Association. To apply, please complete the digital application by following this link:

The Lakota revitalization movement is one of the most active among many Native American languages facing endangerment. It has become more structured as of 2004 with the advent of the Lakota Language Consortium that provides essential learning and teaching resources and programs. This presentation focuses on better understanding how Lakota revitalization may be an important step toward reclaiming identity and building community. Using data from a recent case study, I will be discussing contemporary conceptions and practices of Lakota in the US and beyond.

ABOUT FIT:
We are a growing group of U.C. Berkeley community members interested in language, culture and cross-cultural communication. We invite you to join us!
