A three-day workshop—Immersion A-Z: Essential Basics for Language
Immersion Programs—will be held June 29 to July 1 at the University of
Arizona, College of Education Building in Tucson, Arizona for those
planning and starting immersion programs.
The workshop provides hands-on experience on language immersion
methods, the proven effective way of transmitting language knowledge
from one generation to the next in a variety of contexts including at
home, in the community, at day care centers, at preschool and head
start and at schools.
“Participants will learn how to design and implement immersion
teaching, how to make long range plans for language programs, how to
create language activities, how to produce fun and useful materials
for language learning, and how to assess the effectiveness of the
language immersion program,” according to a press release.
The registration deadline is April 15 and forms are available online
through the Indigenous Language Institute.
