Visitation Days & Workshop – Portland, OR

Take part in a typical day and see students and teachers in action in this OWL Visitation Day and Proficiency & Engagement Training, Thursday-Saturday, March 14-16. Receive tools and ideas, collaborate with other teachers and practice the strategies in the Training day. 

There is something for everybody, as Thursday takes place in an elementary and middle school, and Friday provides a high school experience.

Participants will spend time in student-centered, proficiency-based classes observing and reflecting on strategies and techniques for a variety of levels. See how movement, pairings and groupings, speaking and literacy are cohesively brought together in one class period. Classes will be in Spanish, however, debriefs will be in English. Since many aspects are so visual, a non-speaking Spanish teacher will still benefit greatly from the experience.
