About Language in Motion

Language in Motion is an innovative, cooperative, outreach program using study-abroad returnees, international students, and upper-level language students to aid local K-12 teachers by creating and presenting language and cultural activities in their classrooms.

Program Goals:

There are three basic components:

Sharing the world with K-12 students

International students, upper-level language students, and study-abroad returnees regularly present in high school, middle school, and elementary classrooms to enrich language and cultural learning and to share their understanding of the country and culture. The teacher and presenter agree early in the semester on the level and amount of language to be used. In language classes and classes ranging from Social Studies and English to Biology, Art, Music, and Physical Education, students have presented programs on such languages as Arabic, Cantonese & Mandarin Chinese, Dari, Australian & British English, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

Providing professional development opportunities for teachers

Professional development opportunities made possible by generous donations from Lititz Mutual Insurance, Northwest Savings Bank, and PNC Bank help teachers update skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm. Previously supported by The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.
