The Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR), a US Department of Education Language Resource Center, invites you to take advantage of their summer professional development workshops in July. These workshops offer hands-on experience and concrete ideas for language teachers.
CLEAR has been offering workshops since 1997, and teachers from all over the country have come to Michigan State University's campus to attend them. The workshops offered this year cover a wide range of topics, appropriate as "refreshers" for experienced teachers or as reinforcement on topics in language teaching for newer and pre-service teachers.
