The Zoom training on Book 1 of the Ultimate CI series begins this coming Monday, for those interested. Go to benslavic.com and click on “training courses”. If you want to really access what is in these new books, the Zoom training is important. If money is a concern due to the pandemic hitting everybody hard, I can offer partial or full scholarships – just let me know.
Here is the syllabus:
Module A (Book 1) Syllabus
Dates: Dec. 21 – Dec. 30
Class Size: Limited to 15 participants
The Ultimate CI Books are stand-alone products, but they will be easier to get “up and working” in your language classes if you take the 12 hours of Zoom classes that support them. Module A of the Ultimate CI Book Zoom training program (the beginning module – Book 1) covers everything in the first Ultimate CI Book. Module B (the advanced module – Book 2)) covers everything in the second Ultimate CI Book.
Find the syllabus for Module A/Book 1 below. Note that Module A provides enough material to keep your online students engaged and happy for level 1 language instruction. Module B contains enough material for levels 2-4. No Zoom instruction will be offered in Module B until summer of 2021. Module A is the pre-requisite, happening through the winter and into summer.
