Interactive Interpretation: Connecting Interpretive and Interpersonal Communication
Regional Presentation: NECTFL
Speaking activities support comprehension of interpretive listening and reading tasks. In this session, participants explore the Interactive Model, which provides a clear framework for guiding students to interpret authentic materials at all proficiency levels while maintaining the target language. Rather than viewing the Interpretive Mode as isolated from speaking, engaging students in speaking activities support their interpretation of texts.
