2018 AATSP CONFERENCE

WORKSHOPS

In addition to the regular conference sessions that are included in your registration fee, the 2018 AATSP Conference Program includes full-day and half-day workshops that are six-hours and three-hours in length. Workshops are included in the program in order to provide participants with an interactive and in-depth exploration of a specific topic related to the teaching of language, culture, or literature. Workshop participants generally receive handouts of materials that can be readily adapted to the classroom.

Workshops are ticketed events and require conference registration and a separate fee to attend. Participants may attend only those workshops for which they have registered.

Ni voz, ni voto: La representación del hablante de herencia en el currículo escolar

Presenter: Gabriela Moreno; New Mexico State University; Las Cruces, NM

Establecer un currículo para hablantes de herencia requiere considerar una serie de aspectos: identidades de estudiantes, materiales en el aula, temas y mucho más. Como docentes seguimos implementando métodos tradicionales que desaniman la participación y aprendizaje de los estudiantes; ignoramos voz y necesidades. El taller presenta un acercamiento comprensivo al currículo para hablantes de herencia. Se discuten identidades y niveles, diseño de actividades socioculturales relevantes, espacios como refugios y formas de transmitir conocimiento a comunidades. Those receiving credit via NMSU for attending the conference must attend either W-3, W-4 or the NSMU Session-75 minutes. If you are a NMSU graduate student, please contact Jeff Longwell at jelongwe@nmsu.edu for instructions on how to register for this workshop and receive credit.

Cómo examinar un examen: Los fundamentos de análisis de ítems

Presenter: Patricia MacGregor-Mendoza; New Mexico State University; Las Cruces, NM

Es escaso el escrutinio que recibe una prueba después de administrarse. Un análisis de ítems puede ayudar a identificar posibles sesgos que pueden afectar a estudiantes de herencia o L2 de manera diferente. Para capacitar a los maestros de idiomas, el presente taller presentará tanto la información básica necesaria para efectuar un análisis de ítems como la oportunidad de realizar un análisis basado en datos generados por pruebas actuales creadas por maestros de español. Those receiving credit via NMSU for attending the conference must attend either W-3, W-4 or the NSMU Session-75 minutes. If you are a NMSU graduate student, please contact Jeff Longwell at jelongwe@nmsu.edu for instructions on how to register for this workshop and receive credit.
