7-19-10: What Maryland Teachers are Learning in Mexico

July 18, 2010 at 8:45 pm 1 comment

[Audio http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wypr/local-wypr-913534.mp3%5D Fifteen K-12 Maryland school teachers are scheduled to spend most of Monday in an immersion language course in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Later: a salsa lesson.

They’re part of program called “Partners in Education,” an intensive language, culture, and curriculum-building project. It’s organized by two professors at Towson University and funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

The teachers are partway into their 6-week stay in Cuernavaca. Sheilah talks to Colleen Ebacher, Co-Director of the program and associate professor of Spanish at Towson University; and to Leslie Miller, a Spanish teacher at White Oak Middle School in Silver Spring who’s on the trip.
