How can teachers of Russian language deliver student-centered communicatively oriented instruction and also provide learners with opportunities and time for significant work on grammar and morphology? 

In the webinar we will consider the roles played in language instruction by input, vocabulary and grammar, and explore ways of incorporating grammar teaching into communicatively focused language practice. Our activities take the learner from the first encounter with new language input through focused work on vocabulary to a structured  introduction of grammar via scaffolded communicative student-student interaction. Teachers participating in the webinar will receive guidelines for creating and sequencing communicative activities, as well as a set of materials that implement this approach.

Led by William Comer (Portland State University) and Lynne deBenedette
