WELCOME TO TFLA
🌟Spotlight Event 🌟
This interactive institute will focus on effective strategies to implement proficiency-focused performance-based units and lessons that align with the TEKS for LOTE. Institute goals focus on strategies and guidelines for developing formative and summative assessments that provide evidence of learner progress in using language in real world contexts. Embedded facilitated application sessions will provide opportunities for small group collaboration and feedback. Come with a team from your school or district and join other teams as you improve your own instructional proficiency!
