Confidence is an essential aspect of the World Language learning experience as students build their speaking skills. Students with stronger confidence tend to demonstrate a willingness to speak in the target language without worry or overthinking. In this session, we will discuss ideas to increase students’ confidence through comfort, rapport and shared respect in the classroom environment as well as ways to measure confidence. Although this session will focus specifically on ideas for the World Language classroom, all content areas are welcome!

Session Objectives:

Reflect on the importance of student confidence.
Discuss ideas and strategies for building and measuring confidence.
