Globe Learning: Spanish for Teaching Artists

Summary

This hands-on workshop is designed to help you become familiar and comfortable with specific Spanish arts and education terminology you are most likely to use as a teaching artist in San Diego's predominantly Latinx communities. We will also explore tools for keeping non English speaking students' engaged and feeling valuable in your workshops. Bring a game or exercise you use often.
