An understanding of the structure and history of the Spanish language empowers educators to more effectively teach Spanish language and literacy skills in the 3-5 classroom. In this course, participants will explore developing literacy skills in Spanish and engage in activities they can use in their own classroom or context to support students’ development of Academic Spanish. Topics include vocabulary, spelling, the use of accents, cultural identity, and the value of bilingualism and biliteracy.


The Academic Spanish Language Academy for Educators is designed for all educators who teach Spanish language and literacy, and is appropriate for dual language, bilingual, and world language educators. This course might be for you if you:
teach Spanish in a dual language program, as a foreign language, and/or to native speakers of Spanish; or
speak Spanish and would like to learn more about why Spanish is the way it is and how it is used in various contexts today; or
work with Spanish-speaking students in any context.
