4    Central Connection: 2019 Conference Program
Celebrating Our History and Our Mission

Our History.
Dr. Constance Knop (emerita, University of Wisconsin, Madison) was a close friend of our 14 Founders and served on the team
that organized the first conference. In her remarks on the occasion of CSCTFL’s 50th anniversary, Dr. Knop reminded us that “the
Central States Modern Language Association was formed in 1896. That organization was linked closely to the national Modern
Language Association and its annual meeting consisted primarily of learned papers being read, primarily about literature and some
on culture. Its members were mostly college and university teachers and the topics reflected their interests.”
In the mid-1960s, a group of 14 visionary language professionals—our Founders—recognized that language instructors would
both appreciate, and benefit from, opportunities to share professional best practices that focused not on literary topics but on the
theory and practice of world language teaching and learning. Our Founders included: Jermaine Arendt (MN), Jacqueline Elliott
(TN), Percy Fearing (MN), Anthony Gradisnik (WI), Frank Grittner (WI), Gilbert Kettlekamp (IL), Charles Kirk (OH), Wallace
Magoon (IN), Barbara Ort (MI), J. Henry Owens (MI), Richard Payne (MO), J. Thomas Shaw (WI), Lorraine Strasheim (IN)
and Albert Turner (IL).
Our Mission.
With vision, dedication, and certainly much camaraderie and a sense of shared purpose, the Founders boldly dissolved the
Central States Modern Language Association in 1968 and created in its place the Central States Conference on the Teaching of
Foreign Languages. Specifically, the 14 Founders stated that CSCTFL should:
  • assume a proactive, leadership role within the profession;
  • provide services to all foreign language educators, including those of modern, ancient, and less-commonly-taught languages
    and English as a Second Language; and
  • promote the study of languages across the Pre-K, elementary, secondary, post-secondary, and graduate spectrum.
The organization still seeks to meet these goals by:
  • advocating for the teaching and learning of languages;
  • organizing an annual multi-day conference;
  • providing signature professional development activities like the Conference-Extension Workshop, the Delegate Assembly, and
    the Leadership Development Workshop;
  • publishing an annual scholarly proceedings volume; and
  • supporting the work of world language associations across the fourteen-state region.
When describing one of the CSCTFL Reports, Dr. Frank Grittner wrote: “This book has a happy balance between the theoretical
and the practical.” That “happy balance between the theoretical and the practical” still characterizes our conference today!
Our Logo.
Although we now unlock all manner of objects using a variety of technologies and devices, the Founders selected the classic skeleton
key as the conference’s logo.

The CSCTFL “key” still represents our understanding that meeting new colleagues, exchanging ideas, working together to
achieve shared goals, and participating in engaging professional development are the key to advancing our profession.
Our Future.
Like all things in life, people and circumstances change. However, in her remarks Dr. Knop shared two enduring truths:
  • CSCTFL offers extraordinary opportunties for professional development, but it needs the support of a large number of
    volunteers. Please remember to thank the planning team, then contact a board member or e-mail csctfl.exec.director@gmail.
    com to volunteer your time and talents!
  • The conference renews itself each year. Be sure to complete the evaluation form, which will be sent to you in an e-mail.
With Dr. Knop and our Founders, then, at each year’s conference, let us gather together and say:
                        Congratulations, Central States on your 50th anniversary! We are so proud of you.
    Bravo, CSCTFL, for the leadership you have shown in supporting the professional development of world language teachers.
                     Thank you, Team CSCTFL, for making the Founders’ hopes and vision come true.
                    May CSCTFL have another 50 years of continued service, success and achievements.

51st Annual Central States Conference on the
                         Teaching of Foreign Languages

                          Welcome from the Program Chairs
                                   CSCTFL 2019
      What a pleasure to be back in Columbus! Thank you for joining us—as a member of the Advisory Council, a
      delegate representing your state, an exhibitor, presenter, or participant—you are an important part of CSCTFL!
      Thank you, too, for your dedication to continuing professional development and for your confidence in the
      vision of the CSCTFL Founders: “to support language teachers and to advance the study of foreign languages.”
      Throughout the conference, you will have many opportunities to experience the way CSCTFL not only meets
      this goal, but also furthers the vision of a community of language professionals working and learning together
      to improve world language instruction throughout the Midwest and beyond.
      Our theme this year invites us all to “Break Barriers” between our students, between our respective languages,
      and between our collective selves and the entire world. We teachers are also honored to have the chance to
      help our students “Build Bridges” and to connect with the world around them. Simultaneously, we provide
      our students with the opportunity to “Perform,” that is, to show us and prove to themselves what they can do
      and achieve with languages. The many, varied sessions and workshops were selected so that we can learn and
      share ideas and strategies and meet these challenging responsibilities. The core learning experiences along with
      multiple opportunities to interact with colleagues and share challenges and solutions make attending CSCTFL
      a perfect professional development opportunity for language professionals.
      We also would like to encourage you to take full advantage of all CSCTFL and Columbus have to offer:
         • Create and reignite friendships and professional relationships.
         • Discover or rediscover teaching ideas and strategies.
         • Enjoy local cuisine and explore the many cultural and recreational opportunities that await you in this
           amazing city and state.
      We would like to thank the many people who helped us make this conference happen:
         • Anne Nerenz, our new Executive Director, who has been a strong guide and offered exceptional support
           for us during all of our work for this event;
         • Todd Bowen, the 2020 CSCTFL Program Chair, who has helped us in many ways great and small throughout
           the process;
         • Milton Alan Turner, our local liaison who, along with the OFLA Board and local team, has done great work
           getting Columbus ready for us and getting us ready for Columbus!
      Mostly, thank you, language professionals, who have chosen to spend time with us learning, growing, and
      hopefully having fun at CSCTFL 2019!

Ohio Proudly Welcomes You
                                       to Columbus

W
          elcome to Ohio! The Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages and the Ohio
          Foreign Language Association are looking forward to meeting, working with, and networking with each
          and every one of you. We believe that Columbus, Ohio, is the ideal place to hold the “friendly conference”
to discuss how languages can foster connections, empower communities and celebrate the world. Language and
culture are an integral part of Ohio’s history and present.
In addition to attending the conference, attendees can engage in many cultural community activities. As the capital
of the state, Columbus boasts a plethora of activities for its visitors. The Hilton Columbus Downtown can be
found right in the center of all that is happening in Columbus. The hotel is connected to the Greater Columbus
Convention Center and is surrounded by the Arena District, the Short North, the North Market and downtown
Columbus and is only a short drive from The Ohio State University and German Village. The Arena District is a
premier entertainment district that offers a fantastic nightlife scene with restaurants and bars. The Short North
Arts District is considered the “art and soul” of Columbus featuring a vibrant cultural and business community. The
North Market has served as Central Ohio’s historic public market since 1876. It features fresh and prepared foods,
authentic ethnic cuisine, flowers, wine and beer, unique gifts and cookware. Downtown Columbus encompasses
the award-winning baseball stadium, the nationally ranked Columbus Metropolitan Library, and Columbus
Museum of Art. Located in the heart of downtown Columbus, the Scioto Mile is an urban oasis comprised of more
than 145 acres of lush parkland stretching along the riverfront.
Columbus Commons is a six-acre park in downtown Columbus with programs and events ranging from music
concerts to free fitness classes and family activities. The Ohio State University is one of the largest universities
in the nation. Finally, German Village is one of Columbus’ premier downtown neighborhoods and one of the
preeminent historic districts in the United States.
Volunteers at the OFLA Hospitality Booth can provide you with additional information regarding Columbus
attractions and a Columbus calendar of events and things to see and do during your stay in Columbus at the 2019
CSCTFL/OFLA Conference.

Founders Award
The Founders Award was established in 1986 and first awarded in 1988 in honor of the fourteen original members of the
CSCTFL Board of Directors, who with vision and dedication launched CSCTFL in 1968. The award recognizes excellence in
the promotion of language learning and international studies, leadership in the language teaching profession, professional
dedication and enthusiasm, and strong ties to one or more of the fourteen Central States and to CSCTFL.

                     Mexico City and in Indianapolis, was professionally active at the state, regional,
                     and national levels, and will always be remembered for her vibrant personality
                     and life-long commitment to world language advocacy. Pamela passed away on
