The 2019 California Language Teacher Association conference was a blast! I thoroughly enjoyed networking with so many passionate and driven teachers, both in my own 6-hour training and in the conference in general. This year, I gave a full-day session titled, "Creating a 100% Student-Centered Classroom - Interactive Workstations" and provided teachers with opportunities to experience learner-led learning for themselves. After spending all morning in a classroom-like environment in which participants worked through a series of five workstations, we spent the afternoon discussion our findings and questions, as well as working on developing out own student-centered learning environments. Participants started the afternoon in a whole-group discussion, and then ended by writing norms for student-led work and drafting workstations to take back to their classrooms.
