2008 Spring Conference


"Comparing Textbooks for High School and College"

East Chapel Hill High School
16 February 2008




Dear Colleagues:

You are cordially invited to attend our next Lehrertagung, "Comparing Textbooks for High School and College." The event will take place 16 February at East Chapel Hill High School. It is made possible by the generous support of East Chapel Hill HS and AATG.

We hope the topic of the conference will be of interest to many of you. What is more, we are delighted to have with us three special guests. Dagmar Schalliol of Langenscheidt (Chicago) will present an attractive line of textbooks while Sönke Lorenz, Deputy Consul General, and Michael Höfig, Consultant for German, Goethe-Institut NY (Atlanta Office) will offer their support in strengthening German programs across the state.

All AATG members and prospective members are welcome to attend. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to meet with colleagues of all levels, to learn about interesting ways to expand your language teaching, and to help shape German Day for high school students (at Elon University, 6 March 2008). For non-members, the Lehrertagung is also a chance to meet with fellow professionals and weigh the benefits of membership. It's not be missed!



To register for the conference, please download the registration form (pdf), and return the form along with a check made out to NCAATG to Jim Propst

postmarked by February 6.

Conference fees are $15 for members or $20 for non-members. Full-time students and teachers in their first or second year of service may attend at half price ($7.50)!!!
