Good morning,

Today, I am working on creating an in-kind contribution document for volunteers for the Consortium and a separate one for CCTHITA Language Department. 

If you have any advice or sample documents I can adopt for this please share in the comments below or email me at .

I found a sample document online but it would be useful to see how other language programs handle in-kind contributions.

I'm sure some/many of you already know about this, but I just came across classes at UAS that focus on implementing Dual Language in the school and classroom.  

ST: Dual Language: School-Wide Implementation
     -Participants will learn how to become DL leaders in their school, to identify opportunities to facilitate the consistent implementation of the DLE model school wide, set goals and follow through using leadership teams.

ST: Dual Language: Where to Start
     -Participants will gain knowledge on how to develop a Dual Language classroom that will include a language-print rich environment and develop challenging, interactive and authentic lessons which will include many specialized language enrichment activities.

ST: Dual Language Texas Internship
     -Participants will co-teach using Dual Language pedagogy and curriculum with expert teachers in Grand Prairie, Texas and will experience the embedded vocabulary development, use of student engagement techniques, and planning necessary to deliver effective core instruction to Dual Language Learners.

Good Afternoon Consortium,

We will be picking out a mission statement with these next couple of quarterly meetings. Between the meetings we will be holding small work group sessions to discuss what the Mission Statement should encompass. One of our first meetings we will hold a SWOT analysis.

Please look at the photo below and think or comment on what the consortium's Strengths,  Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats are.

Read up on more on how to establish a mission statement from the link below:
