It’s that time of year again, and we are so excited to start accepting applications for presenters to our 2015 Fall "Celebrating Languages" Conference!

The Conference will be held at the same location as two years ago;
Michael J. Fox Theatre and Burnaby South Secondary School
5455 Rumble Street, Burnaby, BC V5J 2B7 Canada
Friday, October 23, 2015
Successful workshops for BCATML conferences tend to include a strong focus on practical, hands-on lessons and especially on information, techniques, resources, and lessons that can be implemented immediately in our classrooms.
Some ideas are;
· updating methods with technology;
· art and culture;
· social-emotional learning;
· growth mindset in the language classroom
· literacy strategies;
· best forms of assessment;
· preserving strong language elective programs;
· any strategies/activities that you have found useful in your teaching.
Please note that there will be an announcement soon for Publishers or Exhibitors wishing to purchase a display table and advertisement at the Conference.
Thank you so much for your willingness to share your professional growth & expertise.
We look forwards to seeing the variety of ideas that will be flooding in!
