Powerpoint Presentation
Welcome to the Conference! NYSAFLT welcomes keynote speaker
LOTE on the Cutting Edge: Meeting the Challenges of Increased Accountability is the theme for the 96th Annual NYSAFLT Conference to be held in Buffalo, New York. As foreign language educators we are constantly on the cutting edge. Building administrators will point to foreign language teachers who wholeheartedly embrace technology, performance-based assessments, and more rigorous standards as model teachers within their schools. With increased federal and state mandates, APPR and the Common Core are challenging many other disciplines; however, we are meeting these challenges because we are already familiar with standard-based instruction and assessments that incorporate all four communication skills. We have been doing it for years!

We understand that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are not the only subjects that make our children college and career ready, but that the understanding of people, their cultures, products, perspectives, and the languages that they speak are also critical to college, career, and even global readiness. Knowing that STEM is not enough to prepare our students for the global community, we accept the federal and state challenges!

The 96th Annual Conference celebrates our achievements as a community of foreign language professionals and challenges us to push further so that we may continue to excite, educate, and prepare our learners for the global community. Dr. Lori Langer de Ramirez, textbook author, curator of miscositas.com, and FLES advocate will give the keynote speech. Please join us from October 11-12, 2013 in beautiful downtown Buffalo to celebrate what we do best!

I look forward to seeing you all in Buffalo!
