Course Description
Leading with Language for all of Georgia:  A comprehensive overview of current ongoing developments in world language education statewide, how linguistic and cultural competencies relate to Georgia’s global realities and potential, an honest and open discussion of how to connect rural Georgia language programs together and to the overall work in the state and a look into the practical applications of the renewed focus on proficiency.

This professional development opportunity will begin with an open presentation reviewing the major efforts underway at the state level, including a look at Georgia’s new Seal of Biliteracy and its implications, Georgia’s International Skills Diploma Seal and how it is structured, immersion education and the growth of the dual language immersion model and how this relates to all learners, and an overview of the larger economic trends and growth as well as strategic imperatives that are raising awareness to the importance of  linguistic and cultural competencies.
