Project LINC: Learning in Inclusive Classrooms
Welcome to Project LINC.
Research-based support for inclusive teaching in a diverse classroom, covering the converging needs of :
Foreign language instructors,
Students with disabilities, and
"Students prosper in language classrooms that acknowledge that all students are capable of learning other languages given opportunities for quality instruction." American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
Teaching Students With Diverse Needs
How can students with learning disabilities learn to read, write, listen, and speak in a second language? How can teachers set them up to succeed and to want to continue? This webinar sponsored by the AATG looks at a spectrum of learners in a first-year German course, demonstrating course design and classroom instruction techniques that can accompany those same students into their second, third, and fourth years of German study.

MLA Calls for Colleges to Offer More Language Programs
Amid numerous proposed cuts to language programs in higher education, the Executive Council of the Modern Language Association has issued a statement calling for colleges to provide students with the chance to become fluent in a second language.
Students with Invisible Disabilities
Invisible disabilities are the most common type of disability among college students. For example, students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and/or psychiatric disabilities may request accommodations even though they do not appear to have a disability.
