Embedding Advocacy Opportunities Into All That We Do: Lisa Lilley firstname.lastname@example.org On Twitter: @sralil -- lisalilley.wikispaces.com
Lisa Lilley, the 2010 ACTFL TOY, spoke about ways to embed advocacy in what we do. She used the model big “C” and little “c” of culture to introduce a big “A” and little “a” of advocacy. The little “a” are the small things we can do. Some of the examples including displaying the “Discover Languages” logo in various places or sending out a classroom newsletter to parents. Big “A” ways included staying informed of the issues and keeping in touch with elected officials. Her ideas are well displayed in her handout which is called “Embedding Advocacy Opportunites Into All That We Do” and can be found on her website at this url: (http://lisalilley.wikispaces.com/Advocacy+). She also has additional resources on her website for foreign language teachers that are worth checking out.
