Student engagement is easy when classroom content encompasses their strengths and passions. In addition to acquiring language every day in our classrooms, they can also be developing skills in other disciplines. In this session we will look at the wealth of resources available through National Geographic Education and how they connect to Fluency Matters reading materials. Language acquisition can occur with any engaging story, why not use stories of our living planet. Participants will also explore the National Geographic certification process, its application to our classroom curriculum, and the benefits of becoming certified.
