The Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers (CASLT) has launched the Aboriginal Languages Gathering (ALG) website, an online hub of resources and pedagogies for educators and communities striving to teach and revitalize Indigenous languages.
The ALG website provides practical resources including high-quality learning videos, pedagogies, links to indigenous language acquisition and teacher training programs as well as supporting research. More content will be added over time.
The ALG website (www.caslt-alg.org) includes eight professional learning videos of presenters and session topics originally presented at the 2017 Aboriginal Languages Gathering held in Edmonton, Alberta. CASLT is grateful to the government of Alberta for supporting the development of this website.
The website furthers CASLT’s strategic goal of providing support to second language teachers through programs, products, and services. The Aboriginal Languages Gathering website is CASLT’s commitment to supporting teachers of indigenous languages.
CASLT's hope is that the ALG website will evolve into a most comprehensive resource for educators of Indigenous languages. If you have a resource or an idea that can help improve this website do not hesitate to contact CASLT at firstname.lastname@example.org.
