I’ve had a few pre-service teachers doing observation hours and student teaching with me the last few years, and I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can mentor them in the best way possible. I want to dedicate this post to resources that I collect that I believe can support a student teacher.

Annenburg videos: They are dated, but provide good teaching models for teachers, and include learning materials for the student teacher to use as they work with the videos.



Useful videos from Wisconsin about the modes of communication: http://wimedialab.org/worldlanguageassessment/video.htm

The TELL Project (Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning): http://www.tellproject.org/framework/

Training modules, videos and other resources at http://www.sedl.org/expertise/historical/loteced.html

Dr. Cherice Montgomery has great resources:

–Language Links 2006: http://languagelinks2006.wikispaces.com/Instructional+Strategies

–Meaningful Methods: http://meaningfulmethods.wikispaces.com/

–Teens and Tech: http://teensntech.wikispaces.com

–Think Thematic: http://thinkthematic.wikispaces.com/

TPRS Storytelling has a youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsnrjR8QVCUD56gLPmycrug/videos

I found these language teaching modules from Texas: https://coerll.utexas.edu/methods/

Wiki for new world language teachers: https://mpsforeignlanguages.wikispaces.com/Toolbox

ACTFL has a virtural learning library, but the videos cost money: https://www.pathlms.com/actfl/courses

I think previous blog posts of mine would also be useful:
