The guest speakers will discuss task-based projects concerning global issues to increase student motivation, develop all 4 skills, and foster cross-cultural awareness. They will lead a workshop demonstrating sample tasks and high school activities. The participants will then reflect on the lesson cycle and consider variations. A poster display will illustrate the themes of the workshop in detail.
