SHL Hangout: High-Leverage Strategies for Teaching Writing

Facilitated by Adrienne Brandenburg

Most teachers of Spanish heritage learners agree that teaching literacy skills are critical, but many of us feel ill-equipped to teach writing. During this short presentation, Adrienne will share several strategies that have been transformational in her classroom for teaching writing to Spanish heritage speakers. Adrienne has had a lot of success implementing these strategies via a workshop model, but they are easily applicable to any other classroom model.

You’ll hear from Adrienne for about 30 minutes and we’ll leave the rest of the hour for Q&A and discussion, in breakout rooms and as a whole group. We want to hear from you!
