(new project) – building sustainable social and learning networks for less widely used and spoken European languages.


FolkDC (new project) – using folk songs in 10 European languages to motivate and inspire language learning in early language learners. Culminates in a simultaneous concert, streamed on the Internet, in 4 European locations.


EuroLib - The European Children’s Traveling Language Library, is a European Union funded project.Traveling libraries of the most beautifully illustrated children's books in six European languages will travel from school to school across Europe.

I did this study because in my own district, at the time that I started this study, 31% of the schools in my district were still operating in failing status and this just didn't make sense to me. All schools in…See More
