More than two dozen secondary school Spanish teachers will be on campus this week for a workshop focused on modern language pedagogy as a tool to enhance their interaction with students of Spanish as a second language and native community speakers. Organized by Brown’s Department of Hispanic Studies and the Office of International Programs and delivered by the University of Granada’s Centro de Lenguas Modernas (CLM), the workshop will involve 25 hours of instruction between June 25-28, all taught in Spanish. The workshop funded by Brown’s Office of International Affairs and the dean of the College. Recognized by the Cervantes Institute for excellence in the delivery of a broad array of programs, the CLM is a pioneer in Spanish language instruction for international students, with origins that date to the delivery of its first program more than 50 years ago. The teachers taking part in the workshop come from schools around Rhode Island, including Providence, Woonsocket, Middletown, Cranston, and Lincoln.
