TESOL Luminary Dr. Keith Folse Dazzles A.C.E. MSU With Workshop

Dr. Keith Folse teaches workshop at A.C.E. MSU

A.C.E. professional development history was made when the A.C.E. Language Institute at Montana State University hosted Dr. Keith Folse to give a full-day workshop on best practices in vocabulary instruction on July 31, 2015. A world renowned TESOL leader, author, researcher, and speaker, Keith has taught ESL/EFL and teacher training for 35 years in the U.S., Saudi Arabia,  Kuwait, and Japan, has written 57 books (on vocabulary, reading, speaking, writing, grammar, listening, and assessment), has won many teaching and research awards, and is a full professor at the University of Central Florida.

A.C.E. curriculum is “cutting edge” and “light years ahead of other programs!”

Taking advantage of the opportunity to network with other ESL teachers locally and around the state, A.C.E.-MSU invited colleagues from the Intensive English Programs at the University of Montana and MSU-Billings. In addition, the EIKEN secondary Japanese teachers also joined, and Keith Folse traveled to Yellowstone National Park with the EIKEN group the following day. Taking place in MSU’s elegant new Jake Jabs College of Business building, the workshop included 55 participants.

A group of A.C.E. teachers and administrators also met privately with Dr. Folse, who commented that our inclusion of vocabulary instruction in the curriculum is “cutting edge” and “light years ahead of other programs!”
