We are delighted to share the following upcoming professional development event for teachers of Spanish:
Building Biliteracy II: Breaking the Code in Dual Language Classrooms
Saturday, July 8th from 10-2:00 PM
Instituto Cervantes New York

Decoding is an important component of early reading, and students need explicit instruction in this foundational skill. In this session, participants will see a variety of strategies that support phonemic awareness and phonics, explore the concept of skills transfer across languages and design an activity incorporating multiple text types.
Speaker: Patricia Acosta
