Spanish Literacy Institute (¡en español!): Fostering Spanish Language and Literacy Development
April 4 - April 12
Learn research-based strategies to provide effective language and literacy instruction in Spanish in developmental and transitional bilingual, dual language and immersion education programs.
This 15-hour synchronous and asynchronous institute provides effective methodologies for teaching academic language and literacy in Spanish to students in K-8 in a wide variety of programs where Spanish is the language of instruction. Classroom practices are framed by an understanding of Spanish linguistic features.
The institute will provide both synchronous and asynchronous online learning and take place over five consecutive days. It will include:
1) Webinar meetings with CAL facilitators to discuss best practices in Spanish language and literacy instruction and network with other Spanish language educators from schools in the U.S. (12 hours); and
2) A final project in which participants apply what they learn to create a lesson plan (3 hours).
CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
Participants who have attended all webinars and completed the project will receive a CAL Certificate of Completion for 15 hours which may be used for continuing education credit depending on the requirements of your state or district.
