SELF-STUDY: Spanish for Educators (5 hours)
“Learn to effectively manage a classroom of ‘Spanglish’ speakers.”
A classroom is a place where all students must feel accepted and involved. Non-Spanish speaking teachers may need to make an extra effort to involve Spanish-speaking students in the classroom. Learning to communicate with students in their language is one way to generate involvement and help students to feel confident in the classroom.
This course, Spanish for Educators, is a primer for non-Spanish speaking teachers to help build communication with students and their families who speak Spanish as a first language. Teachers will be introduced to general vocabulary and phrases that assist with understanding the Spanish language in the classroom as well as throughout a school environment.
The course is rich in activities, tools, strategies, and templates that may be customized for individual use (including letters to parents and telephone scripts). There are live recordings with Spanish words, phrases, and conversations that enable teachers to read and pronounce Spanish words correctly so they can be understood.
