Foreign Language Seminar

Have you heard of the BER Bureau of Education and Research?  If you need to go to a Spanish teaching seminar full of professional development strategies I have had great experience with these foreign language seminars.  I have been to 3 different seminars for Spanish and I have learned a ton each time.  They provide a lot of hands on teaching tools to help you with your foreign language instruction and send you home with a book full of activities you can use in your classroom the next day.

To find out if there is a Spanish Seminar near you go here.
The next seminar for Spanish that is being offered is titled Powerful Strategies for Differentiating Instruction in your Foreign Language Classroom.  This seminar is available in CA, OH, MI, TX, AZ and PA
