Finding and Using #Authres

Updated 10/30/15 for the NYSAFLT Annual Conference.

In February 2015, I presented at the NYSAFLT Capital-East Regional Conference on Finding and Using Authentic Resources with Checkpoint A Students.  For those of you not from New York, Checkpoint A is basically our state's way of saying novice.  I have since modified this presentation to suit all levels, and presented it at the NYSAFLT Annual Conference on October 31, 2015.

For those of you new to my blog, you can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Above is my presentation, and below are companion links.  A star next to a link indicates it was referenced in the presentation.  The other links are related recommended reading.
