Go Slow to Go far without Textbooks
Every class should be a story. Put away your textbook and instead design units so interesting that students will get lost in the stories and forget that they are acquiring the target language. This workshop will explore ways in which Total Proficiency in Reading Storytelling can make input more comprehensible and language acquisition more compelling and fun. This workshop is geared to Spanish teachers and will be conducted mostly in Spanish.

Integrating Global into World Language Instruction
It is said that you can’t separate language and culture. For language teachers it is not always as easy as it sounds. How do you ad-dress both language objectives as well as discuss global and cultural issues with your students? In this session, participants will examine globalizing strategies and ideas, and practice integrating them into world language lessons. Participants will also explore and receive exemplar global language lessons and resources. In Spanish.
