Organic World Language (OWL) foreign language teaching methodology has been instrumental in reframing my approach to teaching. It has helped me to understand not only the importance of teaching with proficiency objectives, but how to do it.
OWL is “a vibrant, passionate, and active community of educators and students dedicated to working together to establish classroom environments where learners are empowered and engaged. We believe in movement, 100% immersion and an emphasis on the importance of creating community in the classroom. The OWL techniques and strategies align with the National and World Readiness Standards, ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, the Common Core Standards, IB and AP programs.”
