*More about Mike Peto’s Spanish class:
Advanced Spanish with Express Fluency Summer Conference – August. Expect a truly unique advanced Spanish class! Using a variety of CI-inspired theater games, participants will recreate parts of the novel Todas las hadas del reino by Laura Gallego. Intermediate level students will be comfortable in this class as the theater games scaffold the language required for them to understand the novel. Advanced students will discover a fascinatingly complex world of fantasy inspired by one of the most popular contemporary writers in Spain. Spanish teachers will be introduced to a great YA author and will experience a variety of interactive book talk activities that they can use to engage students with their own classroom library. All participants will receive a copy of the novel to extend their learning well beyond the four-day course.
