2019 Conference Workshops


In addition to the regular conference sessions that are included in your registration fee, the 2019 AATSP Conference Program includes half-day workshops that are 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.

This workshop can help you boost energy by understanding the dynamics of Generation Z, acquire pathway strategies to teach for proficiency, reconstruct traditional units using AP Themes and UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals, build a technology toolbox for interpretive, interpersonal and presentational tasks, and then assess for a great reward.

Turn on Spanish and Portuguese Learning Experiences in Your Classroom Using Technology Your Students Already Bring with Them!

Presenter: Jeff Longwell; New Mexico State University; Las Cruces, NM

This workshop encourages Spanish and Portuguese teachers to have students use their technology in the classroom and not put it away. We will discover ways to help students use their own devices in class that will then encourage them to extend their learning of languages beyond the classroom in their everyday lives. We will see how to make activities, use readily available apps and other programs to engage with languages and cultures. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices, pictures, selfies, videos, etc. to put it to use in this hands-on experience! Those receiving credit via NMSU for attending the conference must attend either W-2 or W-3. If you are a NMSU graduate student, please contact Jeff Longwell at for instructions on how to register for this workshop and receive credit.

Motivating the 21st Century  Language Learner: Making Spanish as a Second Language Desirable Once Again!

Presenters: Lee-ann M. Pierre; Bishop Anstey Association; Trincity, Trinidad & Tobago; Jadelle Holder; Bishop Anstey Association; Trincity, Trinidad & Tobago

According to a 2015 article in The Atlantic, the number of language enrollments in higher education in the U.S. declined by more than 111,000 spots between 2009 and 2013; the first drop since 1995. Languages are dying and there is mounting evidence that less and less students are pursuing languages, once it is no longer mandatory. This workshop intends to equip Spanish teachers with instructional skills to motivate students to voluntarily pursue foreign languages beyond the mandatory years. Teachers will engage in a variety of hands-on, innovative strategies to engage their students. These will include creative online and offline assessment strategies and game-based learning, specifically geared towards teaching the 21st century learner.

Promoting Deep Processing in the L2 Classroom

Presenters: Ronald Philip LeowGeorgetown University; Washington, DC;  Celia Chomón Zamora; Oakcrest School; Vienna, VA

Want to get your students to be cognitively engaged in the classroom? We will first provide a succinct report of a theoretical model of the L2 learning process, empirical studies to underscore the role of depth of processing, and samples of tasks or activities theoretically-driven and empirically support to promote robust learning. Attendees will then work in groups to design tasks or activities for their classrooms and share these projects with each other.
