Many teachers who have been unable to attend the annual conference have asked for conference presenters to post their handouts and packets on our website. We encourage those presenters, from ANY past conference, who would be willing to share their materials and expertise with others, to contact any of the IWLA officers. You can email your presentation handouts or packets as Word files or as pdf files. Thanks to the generosity of all who are willing to share their ideas to help improve the teaching of world languages in Iowa!
