Back to school night

do betterA few years ago I made a power point presentation to play in the background while I am greeting parents at the door of my classroom during our “Back to School” night. It summarizes a lot of research on the benefits of learning a second language; some of the claims may be surprising but all are backed up with cited sources (solid academic research). In the future I would like to create a power point like this citing the research on TPRS, but for the time being I’ll “settle” with making the case that parents support all second language classes as a core part of their child’s education.
