Presentation title and abstract:

Teaching Algonquian Verbs: Patterns, Practice and Assessment
This session will invite teachers of Algonquian languages, who work with a range of ages, to present a short summary of their approach to teaching verbs. Teachers will share actual samples of in-class work, homework and audio or print examples students are given to help learn and correctly conjugate verbs. Additionally, the instructors will share how they assess progress toward proficiency and what study aides they have seen students use to be successful in acquiring the use of verbs.
