Visitation Day & Workshop – Yellow Springs, OH

Take part in a typical day and see students and teachers in action in this OWL Visitation Day on Thursday, April 18 and a Proficiency & Engagement Training on Saturday, April 20th. 

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.
