Before you explore this site....


I put some of my most useful lesson plans together in a web site, in case that Italian teachers around the world are looking for ideas for their classes.  Some activities are based on exercises from textbooks, some others are created to enlarge a topic that's been taught in class.  Although most of the activities are for Italian classes, some might be applied to other foreign languages.  Also, I will be posting news and more activities in the section “My posts”.  I will be happy to include helpful suggestions coming from foreign language teachers.  If you’d like to share a useful activity, contact me and I will gladly publish it.


AP Annual Conference & APSI

I was selected as a presenter at the College Board AP Annual Conference on July 10-14 in Philadelphia, PA.  My presentation will be on Technology-based activities for AP classes.  I am honored to be part of the program.

The following week, I will also give two presentations at the AP Summer Institute at the Università per gli Stranieri in Perugia.  I am so excited to give my contribution to the building of the AP Italian program!
