This two day summer workshop for K-16 teachers of heritage learners of Spanish will provide  participants plenty of time to design lessons for their own classes. With guidance from presenters, participants will find new ways to meet the particular needs of their heritage learners by applying a variety of strategies for adapting, creating, and sharing original activities based on textbooks, open educational videos, and digital storytelling techniques.

The event is part of COERLL's Heritage Spanish project, which seeks to build a community of Spanish heritage language teachers for sharing and collaborating on classroom resources.
