Jan 24 AATSP/SANTILLANA USA WEBINARS - SESSION 1: Reading Strategies for the Spanish Classroom

By jreyes 4808 Views 5 comments

AATSP/SANTILLANA USA WEBINARS (JANUARY, 2012)

WEBINAR SESSION 1:

SABER LEER: ESTRATEGIAS DE LECTURA PARA EL AULA DE ESPAÑOL (READING STRATEGIES FOR THE SPANISH CLASSROOM)

 

Session Summary (in English):

Current research shows that learners of Spanish, whether they are native speakers of Spanish or students learning Spanish as a second language, need a variety of reading strategies to develop and increase their reading comprehension skills. An increase of reading comprehension skills allows Spanish learners the opportunity to access to language and content available only through authentic reading selections in Spanish, thus increasing their literacy as well as their cultural and content knowledge.

The acquisition of reading skills is vital to the development of literacy in any language. This session discusses pre-, during, and after reading strategies and approaches that make scaffold reading instruction comprehensible to ALL students. Participants learn/discuss the appropriate use of high-interest, low-difficulty reading selections using specific examples of Spanish literature of varying difficulty levels.

Session Summary (in Spanish):

Every year, Americans around the nation get together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th through October 15th. The contributions Hispanic Americans have made to the United States are endless and inspiring, and they have had a profound and positive impact on our county.
