On February 2023, at the AATSEEL conference I am planning to organize a round table with the title “No Tears No Fears Russian Language Class for Children”, and I would like to invite you to participate.
In accordance with the AATSEEL rules for round tables, I must submit a list of participants with their contact information. Look here (https://www.aatseel.org/program/2023-guidelines/).
Could you please be so kind and join me for the round table? Your participation would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some potential topics for discussion:
- Reducing prejudice against Cyrillic in reading lessons
- Keeping children’s attention in the electronic age
- Learning Russian and mending cultural barriers
- The importance of recognizing and rewarding learning progress
You are welcome to add anything you propose to this list.
Here is an abstract from the rules of round table
“Roundtables are less formal than panels. Initial roundtable presentations are generally shorter than papers (about 10 min. per person). Then the speakers engage in discussion with each other, and the audience is usually invited to engage more directly than at panels. A roundtable is more of an open conversation: speakers come with their own insights and points of view, but not necessarily with a topic to analyze or a thesis to defend.”
Please let me know if you are interested in this round table and planning to participate, and I will include you into the proposal.
Let me know if you have more questions. Thank you!
