This is from Carol:
Hey Ben –
ACTFL was, as many described it, HISTORIC!! It was amazing! It was the first time I can honestly say I felt secure (once my session was over LOL), confident, unapologetic and absolutely certain that CI and TPRS are making serious headway. I am confident my session with Krashen was very well received, making that assumption without a formal evaluation and gaging only from audience participation and post-workshop verbal comments. We had at least 200 attendees, maybe 10-20 more than I’ve had the past few years. The first-hour session was only competing with 4 other exhibitor sessions, and I’m told those rooms had 10-20 people in them (with seating for 150).
I had a second session in the afternoon, and participants in that session seemed even more enthusiastic and sold on CI. That session was smaller since it was slated against 69 other sessions (I just counted how many concurrent sessions there were. OMgosh! I didn’t realize there were that many!!! I originally wrote: ” I only had about 125. ” but given the number of sessions, I’ll say, “WOW! I had 125…” All the Ci sessions were very well-attended. 🙂
The booth vacillated between swamped and busy, swamped and busy the whole conference. We had lots of CI people and lots of “seekers” who seemed truly inspired to learn more about CI.
I wish you could have been there; it truly was “historic.” Even Paul Sandrock stopped by our booth to say “hi” to me. The attached is a meme I posted to Twitter @ACTFL. ;+} …just in case they didn’t notice how full my room was. HAHAHAHA
I feel very blessed to have been part of a great event surrounded by friends and supporters (for the most part anyway.
Hugs to you!
