No. 5: Upcoming event
Dear BM friends,
Wednesday, March 1 at 16h (CET) Laura Cassidy will share some of her strategies for meeting the needs of ELLs (English language learners) in her Upper Elementary environment in Cordoba, Spain.
She will reflect on:
· How the organization of the adults supports a culture of language learning
· Materials and activities that foster literacy and communication skills
· Pros and cons of different providers of literacy materials
Laura brings a depth of experience, since before becoming a Montessori Guide she worked 7 years in her native Scotland in multicultural public schools and two additional years with the Edinburgh Council where she was responsible for offering teachers strategies on how to integrate additional language learning in their classrooms.
The following talk on Wednesday March 15 with Paula Esteve is titled "Cómo conseguí que mis alumnos amasen la lectura"/ "How I Got My Students to Love Reading". This will be our first bilingual Community Conversation!!
