This facilitated virtual workshop uses an interactive and hands-on approach to analyze the importance of valuing the diversity of Spanish in bi/multilingual learning spaces. Via engaging examples, participants will explore the Marco de referencia de las artes del lenguaje del español de WIDA (Marco ALE).
Specifically, the workshop will focus on the importance of respecting and highlighting the diversity of Spanish via its intentional and effective planning and teaching. We will also consider equity and the empowerment of educators and students in the teaching and learning of Spanish.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to
- Reaffirm their value for the diversity of Spanish.
- Make connections between Spanish and their identity as educators.
- Incorporate the sociocultural context of Marco ALE to strengthen the teaching of Spanish.
