Workshop Description – Getting Out of the Textbook: Reaching Out to Reality
Most textbooks are limited to what students need to learn and do inside the classroom.  This workshop will focus on preparing students to interact with the real-world beyond the classroom walls.  Participants will explore the importance of involving students in relevant and purposeful learning experiences that are physically and intellectually engaging; utilize authentic resources that develop deep understandings of cultures; identify the importance of collaboration and negotiation of meaning as essential components in Interpersonal Communication; and design tasks that require students to use what they have learned beyond the classroom walls.
