New Perspectives and Techniques for Teaching Spanish as a Heritage Language

Hosted by TeCHS (Texas Coalition for Heritage Spanish), this two-day workshop will gather facilitators from several universities in Texas (Texas A&M, Texas A&M Commerce, Houston Baptist, UTRGV, UT Austin and Baylor). Heritage Spanish instructors of all levels will receive practical, classroom-ready ideas for using technology effectively, engaging students in project-based learning, developing students’ vocabulary, and improving their orthography.

Mini-workshop topics:

  • Grammar and vocabulary
  • Ortografía
  • Language arts approach/metalinguistics
  • Starting a heritage Spanish program
  • Technology (including podcasting)
  • Open Educational Resources

Appropriate for high school and university level instructors.

There will also be a panel of students to talk about the impact of heritage classes on their education, and a poster session of graduate student research. 

Cost: $50 for faculty and teachers, $20 for graduate students (breakfast and lunch on both days included)
