This two-day summer workshop (June 10 & 11) 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.  

This workshop runs 8am to 4:30pm each day, and will be held in CLA 0.102 in the College of Liberal Arts building on the UT-Austin campus. CPE credit is available for those who attend the whole workshop.

Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments on both days of the workshop, and a Friday evening social event will be provided!
