ROOM CHANGE from San Thomas to CC 206

Many effective language strategies require going beyond the textbook. For example, it is important to incorporate activities that reach kinesthetic, visual, and interpersonal as well as verbal learners. It is also important to provide activities that develop skills – such as using technology – that learners will need outside the classroom.

In this demonstration, Ventures authors provide examples of activities in each of these areas.
