The UW STARTALK program invites you to join language teaching colleagues from the University of Washington and around Washington state who have been researching and applying effective approaches to developing literacy skills in heritage language learners from a variety of languages. This will be a very interactive symposium designed to give practitioners from different languages a chance to share, but will also provide a great introduction to those who are just beginning to learn about the issues faced by heritage language learners.
Specific topics to be posted soon.
Clock hours: 5 free clock hours available for teachers
Sponsoring organizations: University of Washington STARTALK Program, Language Learning Center, Spanish Center, Division of Spanish & Portuguese Studies, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction World Languages Program.
