Professor Netta Avineri hosted the workshop “How to ACE Your Language Classroom” at the Penn State Center for Language Acquisition Language Forum in October.

In this workshop, Professor Avineri explored how language teachers can enhance student learning in their classrooms through action research. The curriculum was based on her recently published book Research Methods for Language Teaching: Inquiry, Process, and Synthesis, and participants discussed the eleven steps for conducting classroom research, reflecting upon & taking action to improve practices in the language classroom. A key component of the workshop was a walk-through to create Applicable, Collaborative, and Empowering (ACE) classroom-based research projects.
