Spark Joy in the Online Spanish Classroom!
Online via zoom, led by Lori Langer de Ramirez
Target Audience: Spanish Teachers, All grades
This eSeminar was originally scheduled as part of the Global Language Conference at Mohonk Mountain House
Effective online language teaching requires a "tidying up" of our traditional toolbox. What worked in our classrooms IRL doesn't always translate well into the online environment. Spanish classes could - and should - be a source of energy, connection, and happiness for young language learners. In other words, our classes can "spark joy" during this challenging time and as we plan for classes in the future.
Join this session for an exploration of activities, tools, and content that can bring a smile to our students' faces, while continuing to strengthen their proficiency in the language.
