Our free monthly podcast series, Language Talk: KWLA, addresses current topics such as KDE initiatives, proficiency-based instruction, and language acquisition research in addition to news updates from ACTFL, Kentucky universities and KWLA.
The Resource Clearinghouse fosters ties among K-20 world language teachers in the state. It is a one-shop spot for world language teachers to find useful information to enhance classroom practice, on professional development, and advocacy for their programs.
Often World Language educators need to advocate for our programs to parents, administrators, legislators, and the wider world. KWLA has compiled a list of world language advocacy websites that we feel will be of great benefit to you
