Adventures in Heritage Teaching_Heritage Teacher Workshop

Adrienne and Mary Beth have put together THREE days with an AMAZING lineup of interactive sessions that will give you some great background knowledge on working successfully with heritage learners, as well as lots of time to process and apply what you hear about!

Important Details

When: Monday-Wednesday June 14-16, 8:45AM-4PM MST

How: This will be designed as an synchronous workshop so we can make it as interactive and collaborative as possible. However, content portion of each session will be recorded and available available until July 14th, 2021 if participants need to miss a session.

Where: Virtual! This workshop will be held over Zoom and will use the Google Drive platform.

Who: This workshop will cater to teachers who teach (or will teach) classes for Spanish heritage speakers at the middle or high school level. This workshop is for both new and experienced teachers, especially those teachers interested in improving their literacy pedagogy and those teachers looking for ways to affirm and value student identities and language practices. Because it is interactive, it is especially valuable for teams to attend together. It is also valuable for curriculum specialists, teacher trainers, and curriculum developers who support heritage teachers.

Additional information and goodies:

Cost: There are a limited number of spots and we like to keep the group small so we can make sure it’s a great experience for everyone. We anticipate that the spots will go fast! Please let us know if you have questions. Link to register can be found HERE.
