This writing seminar is designed to help Spanish teachers enhance their presentational writing skills. In an attempt to achieve this goal, participants will examine the various writing genres that most often appear in the Spanish L2 classroom setting: description, narration, exposition, argumentation, and academic writing. Using a diverse body of literary and cultural readings as models, participants will analyze specific writing styles in an attempt to hone their own writing skills. Special attention will be given to the AP Spanish Language and Culture Global Themes as a way to inspire student writing samples. The ACTFL 5 Cs will also inspire participants to design lesson activities that can be used in their own curricular practice. Conducted in Spanish by Dr. Michael Orlando.
