Cheryl reports from Connecticut:
I had a great experience Friday at a World Language meeting! I have been working with the same group of teachers for quite a while, and while I am the only CI practitioner, several come down on the communication side of what I think of as the “old way”. At this meeting, I spent nearly the whole afternoon session with my French counterpart from the other middle school in the district, and we spent it with her drilling me on “how to do what you do”. She has observed me before, we have talked a lot, and she is doing a bunch of reading now, looking for things she is comfortable doing now, and planning to “do it” next year!! Another wants to visit sooner; she hasn’t seen me before, and is really interested in taking the next step. This feels like such a victory for us all; I just had to share!
