This is an online course designed for teachers who wish to continue to develop their language and cultural skills through popular children's films that are available in Spanish. The films selected will be familiar to children and teachers of all ages and available at local libraries or through online streaming. Emphasis will be on vocabulary building, improving conversational and writing skills, comprehension, and film analysis, in addition to discussions of a cultural nature within the context of each film. Group work will be in the form of discussion boards and lesson plan development. This course is conducted in Spanish by Dr. Lynn McGovern.
What participants are saying about this course
Dr. McGovern is knowledgable, organized, warm, accomodating, and helpful.
In a content area where quality professional / graduate level courses are hard to come by, Idioma has been my department's "go-to" and saving grace in recent years. I recommend the courses to all world language teachers.
