TEACHING SPANISH TO HERITAGE SPEAKERS

Conducted in Spanish by Anna Uhl Chamot, Ph.D. and Claudia Bezaka, FL Supervisor, DC Public Schools

June 23 - 24, 2011

Registration:

Before May 1: $225; Regular: $250

Level: Secondary/College/Adult

Secondary heritage Spanish speakers are fluent in oral Spanish, but vary greatly in their level of literacy. Those with educational gaps need help in developing their reading and writing proficiency and also in grammar and academic and literary vocabulary. Practical, research-based activities for high school Hispanic students demonstrate ways to teach literary concepts, language skills, and learning strategies for reading comprehension and writing in Spanish. Ways to differentiate instruction in mixed literacy level classes are suggested.
