Students as Teachers: Using Teaching Assistants in Immersion Language Classes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At the Parker Essential School in Devens, Massachusetts, juniors and seniors participate as teaching assistants in the Introductory Séptimo program. Session attendees will engage in a kinesthetic, immersion experience led by intermediate Spanish students. Students and teachers will model how they engage novice-level learners in community-building activities that facilitate language learning. Participants will learn how students at the intermediate level deepen their language skills while acting as coach, instructor and camp counselor to novice learners.
