Genre Matters in World Language Teaching, Assessment, and Learning

Situated in the recent scholarship on contextualized, task-based performance assessment and instruction of world languages that addresses the Can-Do Statements, this workshop introduces participants to a genre theory and pedagogy that views spoken and written texts—all instances of communication—as genres that can be made visible and systematically taught to students. Participants will learn how to integrate genre into a backward design (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005) approach for the assessment and instruction of a world language that is centered on the development of the learner’s ability to communicate in written and spoken genres.
