Señorita Shourds Presentation At The Foreign Language Association Of Virginia Conference

On October 7th, 2011 Señorita Shourds traveled to Richmond, Va. to present at the annual Foreign Language Association of Virginia (FLAVA) conference. The presentation was titled Service Learning in the Language Classroom… And Beyond!It focused on how service-learning projects can be a part of world language objectives as students go into their community and practice using the language, while performing a service for others. A few examples include students volunteering their language skills to assist others, starting a buddy system where older language students read or teach younger students, or even traveling to other countries where the language is spoken to do service in an international setting. Señorita Shourds teaches K-4 Spanish and Upper School Spanish in 7-8 grades.
