The new Graduate Student Teaching Assistant workshop-seminar is a series of biweekly meetings which combine readings and discussions of articles that treat the basic tenets of foreign language pedagogy with opportunities to apply what is presented in those readings to real-world teaching situations. The principle goals of the workshop-seminar are the enrichment and diversification of our new teachers' methodological approaches as well as the development of their confidence and skills in the classroom. These goals are met through both an examination of the theoretical underpinnings of second language acquisition and a wide variety of exercises and tasks, including but not limited to peer classroom observations, textbook analyses, test writing and analysis, sample lesson plan creation, sample exercise and task creation, and self observation and analysis.
