Communication and Communities is one of a five-part video series that was produced in response to teachers' requests for examples of what Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Languages other than English (LOTE) implementation actually looks like. The videos are centered around scenes from LOTE classrooms across Texas and include interviews with students, teachers, parents, and administrators. This episode focuses on the interrelationship of the Program Goal of Communication and one of the other goals: Communities.
A companion video study guide (available at www.sedl.org/loteced) offers suggestions for how to use the videos in a variety of professional development contexts. It contains background information on the changes brought about in LOTE instruction as the TEKS for LOTE are implemented and individual workshop units focusing on the program goals highlighted in each video. Resources include worksheet masters, suggested activities, workshop facilitation tips, and supplemental reading lists for participants.
