Communicating across languages and cultures is complex. Help students to develop the ability to scrutinize and analyze languages through a strategy we call Así se dice (That’s how you say it!). In this interactive workshop, you will explore how to enhance students’ vocabulary, syntax, and metalinguistic abilities as you engage in strategic translations/interpretations. This strategy is intended for use in grades 3 and up.
