“Dear registrants for CLA’s April 25 workshop,

UVA President James Ryan announced on Tuesday night (3/17) the cancelation of all UVA events through mid-May: we must therefore, with considerable regret, postpone the workshop, presumably until some time during the 2020-2021 academic year.  Because we had counted on the April workshop for publicizing the summer institute, that too must be postponed. We are very sorry about
this. We remain committed to supporting K-12 teachers. If there are kinds of programming that CLA might provide virtually in the weeks ahead—professional development work that would help you to meet standing requirements, opportunities to speak Spanish with fellow teachers, or others—please write to Natsuko Rohde, CLA’s Associate Director, at nr6u@virginia.edu; if we find there are needs we can fulfill, we’ll be eager to do so. As is so often the case, teachers have been among the greatest heroes during the present crisis. Please know that we are moved by your commitment and
creativity and eager to be allies alongside you in whatever we can.

Sincerely,


The Center for the Liberal Arts, University of Virginia”


The Center for the Liberal Arts at the University of Virginia provides free, high-quality, content-oriented professional development for K-12 teachers.  We have a program for Spanish teachers coming up – please register online; we’d love to see you!

Saturday, April 25, 2020 at Zehmer Hall, UVA – Online Registration is now open!

First of three programs funded by the Longview Foundation, about bringing a genuinely “global” approach to teaching Spanish, reflective of the complexities, nuances, challenges, and opportunities revealed by current scholarship about the category of the “global.” Work with Prof. Gustavo Pellón of UVA, other UVA faculty, and fellow teachers on exploring a deep understanding of the “global” in relation to foreign language instruction.

Note:  We will also host a one-week 2020 summer residential institute at UVA on this subject!

Please visit our website for details and registration information.

Webinar: La inmersión dual y su importancia para la justicia

Organized by Difusión and AATSP
Thursday, October 17th, 2019
11:00 AM – 12:15 PM CDT

REGISTRATION

In the United States there are models of primary education known as dual immersion that teach in Spanish between 50% and 90% of the day. In this webinar, we will first look at the results of research demonstrating that students in these programs reach higher levels of English, academic performance and Spanish than their classmates who study only in English. 

Then we will address the current and potential implications of dual immersion to promote social justice, an important issue for every student but even more forceful for the most vulnerable children and families in the country.

Dr. Kim Potowski is professor of Hispanic linguistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She directs the Spanish program for heritage speakers and is the founder of her summer study program in Oaxaca, Mexico. Her research focuses on United States Spanish and the connections between language and identity. 

Among her efforts to promote education in two languages is her 2013 TEDx talk entitled “No child left monolingual.” She is the author of several textbooks, including Spanish in the United States; Spanish grammar: Social variation and written conversations.
